Looking for some advice from my OG bros on how to strengthen my lower back.
When I squat and come into the full squatting position, my lower back naturally rounds at the bottom. No matter how hard I suck in, clinch my lats backward and my core my lower back rounds. As a result when I squat a lot of the pressure goes into my lower back.I am not very flexible but I think the problem is more to do with my lower back/core.
I started a new job 2 months ago and it's fucking rough on my body. I'm on a ladder all day reaching up and bent over in awkward positions which wrecks my neck and back. I've become depressed as skipping the gym has become the norm for me and I'm just struggling to maintain myself so I can work every day. Squatting has been out of the question for a month or two as I've been trying to sort my body out.
What is the best approach to increasing my lower back strength and flexibility? I feel like all the stretching and core work I do is nullified after a single day of work where my back just gets annihalated. Sitting here feeling depressed af - hurts to even sit in a damned computer chair some days.
Love all of you. Thanks <3
