    its a sign you have a weak posterior chain, so start working on that and you won't feel it as much


    Evo: you might have a weak lower back, it could just be back pumps, or you might be stiff legging it a bit too much.

    The stronger your glutes are, the less work your low back has to perform, and the less likely you are to injure it.

    that's really good to know...

    what are some glute exercises?

    kick backs on the abductors machine?
    lunges?
    step ups?

    I like this for a warmup:
    side-lying clams
    glute bridges
    quadruped hip extension
    x-band walk

    For strengthening:
    Single-leg RDL
    Single-leg squat (unsupported)
    Reverse lunges, walking lunges, lunges onto a box
    Bulgarian split squats (especially with the front leg on a box)

    I find it really easy to stiff-leg it as well especially because my glutes/hams are a weak point.
