Hamstring Exercises for Lower Back Pain
It seems that a poor hamstring muscle condition is a factor for lower back pain. When hamstrings are too rigid and inelastic, they make your lower back muscles do the most work. Bending over, stretching your legs out front, running in leaps, all these activities involve the hamstring. The lower back pain exercises involving the hamstring are running and short sprints. While producing sweat, you also work on your hamstring muscles (not to mention other muscle groups of your body).  Therefore it is really a good idea to go out running once in a while. Benefits you can get while doing a good 15 minute run are many. Stretching and bending exercises is also a good way to work out your hamstring muscles. For maximum effect, apply pressure on lengthening the hamstring such as bending forward or stretching your legs in front of you. The exercise should take at least 30 – 45 seconds and should be done in two sets for each day. During the regimen, avoid stretching or bending too fast. Avoid bouncing as this can cause muscles tearing.
