Let’s look at lower back exercises.
If you have something specific going on with your back let me know. But, if it’s just general low back strengthening and health I put out a series of 4 videos that I highly recommend:
Do them in this order one after the other. If you need further help or a more specific issue just let me know.

great work-outs! Love to include this one in my warm-up session before a round of golf.
Constantly watching your videos, as the exercises are aiming at better flexibility and strength to be able to go 18 holes well prepared.
Just keep on going like that.
Thanks for the kind words… glad you’re adding this to your repertoire.
Great stretches. I have had spinal fusion from s1 to L4. I often get pretty sore in my SI joint. Do these hip mobility exercises help with SI pain?
Thanks so much
Yes. That 90/90 stretch I did in the video with the 3 variations (push the knee, pull the opposite knee and pull the physioball) are gold standards for SI rehab. Making sure your hips and thoracic spine stay flexible and healthy is a MUST for you given your fusion.

These are great stretches, thanks, Jeremy. I’m looking for ways to loosen up prior to my round. The ‘Heismans’ can be done there easily enough and you’ve previously shown us a standing version of the 90-90 stretch.
Do you have any thoughts on doing the ‘Hip Circles’ in a standing position? I’ve tried it starting the leg backwards, bending the knee and bringing it up and round, as if over a low wall and it seems to give a similar feel to the all-fours version. Does that sound reasonable to you?
Absolutely! Hip Circles in the standing position are a wonderful idea. Try clockwise and counterclockwise.

Great exercises! Keep ‘EM coming. I about about to get a new hip this week and this set of exercises will be perfect therapy…after a while.

All the best with the surgery this week. Here’s to a speedy and healthy recovery!

I love this method of exercise and mobility stretching. I’m 72 years old I’ve been going to yoga 2 times a week for the last 2 years, getting into Gyrotronics , slow jogging and of course golf. Lately I have been having an accute back problem. I know I have arthritis in my spine. I think there is some specific move I am making that is pinching a nerve. Is there a strategy that I could use to isolate the move that is causing me problems. When I tweek it, it puts me out of commission for about a week. I did it again 4 days ago working in the yard.
I would really consider going into a medical professional. They will be best to run you through a number of tests to help you isolate the issue. They will want to know where the pain is and if it radiates. Radiating pain down a leg with flexion can often times predict a disc issue. Painful extension can often predict stenosis. Working in the yard is a common reason to irritate a disc/nerve root or just a recurring muscle strain. Having said that, there are so many other things it could be and would be unprofessional of me to try and diagnose from a distance. I’m sure you can appreciate that. If it’s happening periodically I think it would be great to get a professional evaluation. You will get a much better idea of how to protect yourself and to prevent it as much as possible in the future.
Best of luck and keep me updated.

Some more of these longer routines, targeting different muscle groups, which could then be run sequentially, would be great.
Awesome feedback… thank you!

Jeremy, I do like following along.
You could make more like these and I would follow along with you.
Could even make them longer, for more of a workout.
Thank you, Jaime
You would know other good sequences to film,
but one idea would be to lead us through the Standing
Compression, Lunge Stretch, Founder and Woodpecker,
without stopping to explain movements. Would give us a
site to visit to get a good stretch workout.
Am sure you would know other sequences as well.
I hope to do more like this soon!
I certainly understand you not wanting to make a long distance diagnoses. It was just a shot in the dark. I’ve learned to be open to all possibilities.
I forgot to ask, would it do anything good or bad to reverse the hip circles?
Hope you’re feeling better. As for the hip circles… yes, definitely both directions are helpful.

Hey Jeremy, Great exercises and warmups. I’m 68yo, slim, and keep in good shape but winter has slowed me down.
1. After a round or practice, my outer left hip is usually sore for a day or less, right at the junction of the leg bone and hip/pelvis, slightly to the rear on the left side. What video warm ups and exercises might build that up to relieve that pain? Thanks.
2. Also, my follow through is weak–I have poor extension that carries through to my “pose”. I feel tight around my right lat (not left) , and in my left shoulder (feels slightly impinged) which makes it hard for me to get into the position Paul says: club in back of head along ear-line. Any warm-ups or drills? Many thanks. Jon
