3 Fun BANDS-ONLY Core Exercises Safe For Degenerative Discs
In this video, I’ll be showing you a variety of resistance band core exercises that you can do to strengthen your abs and lower back.
Resistance bands are a great way to add resistance to your core exercises, helping to build muscle and improve tone. Some of the exercises we’ll be demonstrating include:
- Banded Ceiling Presses
- Banded Walk Outs
- Banded Single Arm holds
All of these exercises can be easily modified to suit your fitness level and can be done in the comfort of your own home. If you stick with these 3 exercises, you’ll soon see an improvement in your core strength and stability.
In addition to improving core strength and stability, resistance band core exercises can also be beneficial for those who suffer from lower back pain.
Strengthening the muscles in the lower back and abs can help to support the spine, reducing the risk of injury and alleviating pain.
These exercises should not cause more pain or discomfort. If they do, stop them immediately and seek a local professional. Remember to start slowly, use proper form, and gradually increase the resistance as you become stronger.
Want me to show you exactly how to incorporate core training into your back pain or post-surgery relief strategy without making your pain worse?
Is It Safe To Exercise With Degenerative Discs?
It’s not so much the exercise that is dangerous for those with a degenerative disc diagnosis. Instead, it’s the person doing the exercise.
Most core exercises can be easily modified for someone with a degenerative diagnosis. What matters most is understanding what modifications you need to make or when it’s time to find a new exercise to try.
The three core exercises I have in this week’s video are a great starting point if you have any level of degenerative spine.
A decade ago, I was diagnosed with degenerative discs above my ruptured L5-S1, and I never had them “fixed.”
I am free to do what I please and exercise the way i want all from making smarter exercise choices and healing my body from chronic pain over the years.
