This Works I promise??

Get your girly to kick off her shoes (as long as she is not too hefty) and tell her to walk on your back from the bottom of your spine upwards - it works - again - make sure she is a lightweight - just does the trick???

talking of stiff backs i'm finding the only thing that's limiting my sit ups is my lower back starts to cane- poor core strength or just a rubbish back?

Lower Back Pain

If your back is stiff when you are doing situps, then you may have the wrong posture for this. i.e. you may be using your back to help you to sit up, instead of just your dorsals.

Make sure you have bent knees when you sit up, as this reduces the pressure on the lower back. Also, try alternative leg sit ups as an alternative and crunchies as these will take the strain off you back.

Also: If your back hurts after you run, then a few stretches may help you to resolve this.

If you sit on the floor with one leg out straight, slowly reach for your foot. Don't over stretch. Hold the position for 20 seconds, release the stretch and then stretch again for another 20 seconds. You'll find that the muscle will allow you to stretch a little further the second time. Then swap legs. Although, this stretch, stretches the hamstrings, it also streches the lower back and may help you to ease your Lower Back problem.

Lastly, always move into the stretch slowly and never bounce the stretch.

Cheers

But everything else 'down there' is ok then. I'm just concerned thats all!

I read a humorous little story in one of Steve Preece's books last night relating to your downstairs problem, (apologies to Steve for not quoting precisely, I do not have the book on me!)

Steve was sitting in a pub with a friend he had made during his work travels in Europe (Germany?) His friend was Ex SAS and they were discussing military experience, tactics, field craft etc when the conversation somehow switched to the detrimental effects beer has on a mans erection, (will that be censored, who knows). Steve's friend then rather bluntly asked steve if he had problems down there. Steve questioned why he would ask this and his friend started to explain that when he was young it was rock hard. When he was older and was in the SAS he could grab hold of it and bend it slightly, but now he his even older he can grab hold of it and bend it in half. Steve asked "are you saying you're getting problems down there?" to which he replied,
"oh no Steve, I've just been getting loads stonger!"

Steady

Steady on there mate. The problems down there sketch refers to brewers droop. Never an issue for me I might add. This was a really funny situation when it happened.

This is going to sound weird, but I ONLY get a stiff lower back when I get more than 7 and a half hour sleep. It'll be stiff all day, nothing will loosen it apart from a REALLY hot bath, not a shower.

Back

I had a mega gym sesh last night and my lower back is blooming killing me. I do practice what I preach though and am doing the remedial exercises.

As for girly walking up your back bit, once you're wearing the green lid and are fearless, you'll be getting the girls to do it in high heels!!

Cheers
