Do you often suffer from back problems?

Sitting too much and stress is often behind it.

A personal trainer reveals which simple habit can help.

Well-trained back and abdominal muscles ensure stability in the trunk. If this is the case, it effectively prevents back problems. But the modern way of life has a suboptimal effect on our back health.

Sitting too much, in particular, causes the core muscles in the back and stomach to atrophy.

Those who do little sport and rarely build up muscles in a targeted manner run the risk of developing back problems.

Ten minutes of back training a day are enough to strengthen the muscles.

Targeted exercises on equipment or strengthening Pilates units, for example, are good ways to stabilize the core.

But not only sweaty training has positive effects:

According to the

Simple exercise ensures that back tension is released

Anyone who has spent the whole day in the office chair and has had little exercise will notice in the evening at the latest that their entire back is tense.

To relieve this tension, personal trainer Erik Jäger recommends an easy-to-use exercise.

It can even eliminate recurring back pain - for which tension is the most common reason.

And that is how it works:

  • Lie on your stomach (preferably on a flat surface such as the living room floor).

  • Stand up your elbows and look forward.

  • The thoracic spine remains loose (pull your shoulders away from your ears to do this).

  • Personal trainer Jäger recommends lowering your upper body towards the ground as far as possible.

  • Hold this position for 20 to 30 minutes.
