I'd been experiencing lower back pain just below the waistline (which I think gets worse day after day) after I started to miss my daily workouts. No, this did not only happen now. I've been experiencing back pains that's why I've been trying to exercise

yoga or pilates will work...lower back pain can be a sign of dehydration, kidney imbalance or even a weak diaphragm so drink more water...and the yoga and pilates will help improve your breathing pattern by strengthening your diaphragm...good luck

Hi. You can try some yoga moves like the cat cow, sphinx pose, cobra pose, etc. Moves that help stretch that lower back. It feels great afterwards. Is the pain consistent or is it caused by exercise?

Thanks a lot for this advice, Mike. Will try harder to workout more often now. I've missed 3 days already as of time of reply.

Hi Calvin! Exercise actually alleviates the pain somehow but during busy days when I miss working out, I also start feeling the pain. Could it be bad posture as well?

Posture can definitely be a cause of lower back pain. Tight muscles or weak core muscles can cause this. Muscle imbalances. Hip flexors and hamstrings might also cause it. But I'm glad exercise alleviates the pain. I also see in started a back pain relief program which is excellent! Another question. Do you have a sedentary job? Sitting for long periods has an effect on your lower back as well.

I agree with tight muscles. I'm not really the type of person who's into exercises. I just started exercising late 2014. On and off after that. Also, I spent a lot of time in the office, if not traveling lately. Any workout you can recommend to loosen tight muscles?

I was also thinking that doing exercises on a daily basis helped in loosening muscles and correcting postures but since I did not do it on a regular basis and I've skipped some days, my muscles go back to it's "more relaxed" state which is what it used to before I started exercising-which causes pain. This is just a personal assumption

Ah. Ok then. That makes sense. A lot of people who have office jobs experience lower back pain at some point in their lives since they spend a lot of time sitting. However, simple exercises can help a lot with this. The pain may be caused by muscle imbalances. For example, if the front muscles are too tight, or stronger, the back muscles will be pulled forward causing them to be loose and "relaxed". So you need to strengthen them to make them even. Same goes if it's the other way around. It's a push and pull effect. Here are...
