A Strong Back for a Stronger Core

All too often we leave our back, well on the back burner. We're more concerned with our abs, our arms and our butts to name a few. What we're not realizing though is that without a healthy and strong back, we're nothing but whimpering, hunched over, smaller versions of ourselves. Varying degrees of Quasimoto. How debilitating is it when you pull a muscle in your back, or have an ache in your lower back? You're squirming in your seat, struggling to find some modicum of comfort that comes only in short waves. Strong backs assist in everything, even helping to build up ab strength. 

Next time you find yourself with 15 minutes of nothing to do (put the phone down), do this quick exercise and begin strengthening your back. Start with no weights and then work up to adding a little weight to really start noticing improvements. 

Try doing each move for 30 seconds, one right after the other. Once you do all three, rest for 1 minute, and then repeat again for 3-5 rounds! C'mon, you can do this!!
