What is the best start of DB for Lumbar/Sciatica back problems?

  • I'm new to DB and worked out regularly during my football days in high school and after, but I had a bad car accident when I was 22 injured my back and hadn't worked out since. Now 10 years later I've gained way too much weight, I have back problems, and border line high blood pressure whats a good program to start with existing lower back and sciatica pain?

    Back problems need to be seriously considered with workout programs, and especially when coming back into working out. I would try starting with the yoga series to help strengthen then spine before getting into more aggressive types of workout! Let me know how it goes!

      If I can jump in...I have major SI joint issues - can't run anymore and I found that Cody's mobility workouts are amazing for keeping everything aligned -yoga is great, too, but I find the mobility workouts allow me to get the joints all moving together so I don't start compensating for that lower back weakness and get jammed up. I progressed to TBT - there is mobility at the beginning of each work out. I am on my second week of Inferno and my back is pretty strong. I have to modify the roll and jumps, but hey, I'm just happy to be moving again!
      Good luck - take it slow - it's worth doing it right! Take care!

      I have sacroilleitus (sp? sorry) and found that lack of exercise made it worse. Sometimes I just have to modify the moves or do something else, but basically it has seemed to help me. Check with our doctor to strengthen your back before jumping into intense moves. Good luck
