Low Back Pain Be Gone!

This article is not about becoming President or commanding others. Rather, it is about how to get into a position of power in the weight room for athletic performance. We have all heard about the almighty posterior chain for quite some time now, but the thing is, most people can’t access this ‘chain’.

These two problems combined, lead to position in which all power is lost. Force is then transmitted through a rounded spine and worse; they are relying mainly on their quads to try and get that ‘arched and neutral’ lower back that we are after. This is impossible and will not lead to any strength or power development. So what do we do to correct this problem?
