    First time i pulled my lower back was about 1.5 years ago, on a clean and jerk (learning the exercises for the first time on non Olympic weights). Second time about 6 months ago trying a stretch timberwolf was doing in one of his videos.

    (Opening stretch)

    I went right into it and instantly something snapped, wasn't near as bad as original pull though.

    Thought I'd try the stretch again yesterday till i felt the slightest stretch and take it slow... well I pulled my lowerback again :o

    Have anyone else tried this stretch? I'm going to have to let it go, looks good but I fail so.. :wtc:.

    It's a good stretch, but if you're not used to stretching like that you definitely need to warm up to it.

    Start out rocking on your back with your legs tucked to your chest. After a number of rocks move into a straight leg sitting stretch with your head down. Repeat 2-3 times and try to increase sitting stretch every time.

    After you do this you should be able to safely complete his stretch. I've never tried it by holding on to the legs. I've always gone past the head to get my toes/knees on the ground behind me.

    do you get a lot of stuff like this timber? Like "I tried that thing you did in that video and hurt myself, it's your fault!"
