Hard Core Pain Relief


An abs workout may help relieve your achy back, say researchers in Brazil. After cyclists with lower-back pain completed a core-strengthening programme, 44% reported less pain. “Pedalling can create micro-movements in your pelvis and spine, which can lead to lower-back pain,” says Stuart McGill, a professor of spine bio-mechanics at the University of Waterloo, Ontario. “Core work stiffens your spine and back, shifting movement to your legs.” McGill says the front to side bridge, curl-up, and bird dog can help everyone from elite cyclists to desk jockeys.
