    Strech before and after working out, use the streching as a cool down period, It also comes in helpful in other areas as streching makes you more limber,
    i find it very helpful that that i can bend over with my legs spread and grab my ankles.icon_smile.gif

    Make sure you're keeping your back strong during your workouts. To do this, you need to always avoid rounding your back or hunching over. Think about it like you're arching your back while standing.

    If you have a rounded back, you're putting a ton of undue stress on your vertebrae, and you could really injure yourself.

    Another thing you should focus on is strengthening your core (abs). Your abs and lower back are (essentially) antagonist pairs, meaning strengthening one will usually strengthen the other.

    If you're new to something an experiencing pain, you're probably doing it wrong. Don't get a belt, get a few sessions with a professional trainer.

    Surely your lower back is hurting 'cos you're either not doing the exercise and isolating correctly or because your lower back muscles are too weak.

    Deadlifts babe. lots of. xx

    Hard to really tell what the issue could be without a list of lifts you are doing. Also depends on how sedentary you are with your lifestyle.
