Something To Consider:

Spinal Load and Back Exercies

Intensity of spinal exercises can be measured as muscle loading and spinal loading such as spinal compression and spinal shear forces. (Axler, McGill 1997) Ideal exercises have a high ratio of muscle challenge to spinal load. Analyses of common exercises prescribed for low back pain give surprising information. For instance, spinal load is not different during sit-ups with knees bent or straight. In either case, the load is extremely high (over 3000N) and should not be prescribed in the low back recovering population! (Axler, McGill 1997; McGill 1995). There are safer back exercises. Safe back exercises emphasizing endurance training of key spinal stabilizers have produced very successful results with correcting spinal imbalances. (Hides et al., 1996; McGill 1998; Liebenson 1999; Timm et al., 1994; O'Sullivan et al., 1997).
