These are the exercises I used to have to do to stop back pain when I was still an office wreck. The reason given then was that I had no strength in my muscles - which was true. Ten years forward I'm a very fit kiteboarder but today after a fairly radical three hour session my lower back hurt so bad like back in my office days. Very difficult to get up from a chair, can't bend forwards without massive pain, etc...RDM wrote:You need to address this ASAP buddy....Chillbay wrote:My problem is I am now suffering from lower back problems.
Start with these simple exercises...
I have no problems using ANY seat harness for waveridingChris1973 wrote:Has anyone used a seat harness comfortable and functional enough for wave riding???
Definitely give the Dynabar a go. I've been using it for about 2 years now with my seat harness. No comparison in the range of motion. The Dynabar makes toe-side a breeze.Chris1973 wrote:Peter, doesn't the seat harness restrict your movement and eventually make it more difficult to ride comfortable going toeside?
I 'm asking because in the last two years i'm most of the time on my surfboard and although my waist harness feels comfortable for that an older back injury will make my lower back feel a little sore and stiff the night after (not during the session) and i was thinking of useing a dakine nitrus i have somewhere for a change. Maybe even give that dynabar a go.
I know what you say to be true, but, if the harness spreads over the lower (pelvis) and upper part (bottom of rib cage) then thats great, not all waist harness's do this, but some do, so you get the support and the freedom.Windrider wrote:Seat harnesses don't have to provide back support. Some do. Some don't. But the problem with waist harnesses is that they focus pressure on your lower/middle back and rib cage. All a seat harness has to do is focus the pressure on the area of your body designed to handle it.
Think about hanging in the air for any length of time. Would you rather have your body weight supported by your pelvic area or by your waist? The space between the top of your pelvis and the bottom of your rib cage is not designed to support your body weight under stress. It's simple physics.
