That irritating niggle at the base of your spine. That dull ache after a core workout. That urge to stretch and contort your back to get relief. Having lower back pain can be a pain in the… back, especially when it’s stopping your usual exercise routine or punishing you after working up a sweat!
We all know the drill - we get a burst of motivation to begin a new fitness regime. We may set stupidly high expectations and goals for ourselves, or work ourselves to the bone to try get immediate results… but before we know it, we’re hurting and disappointed by the lack of change.
Who else find themselves flagging at their desks come 3pm? Call it the post-lunch coma, the afternoon slump, the doomsday hour…. Whatever you call it, it can be so frustrating when you still need to use your brain but caffeine refuses to have any affect!
We constantly preach that exercise benefits you both inside and out. It’s been well-reported that working out can positively impact your mental health, and as this month is Mental Health Awareness month, we’re bringing you a little happiness experiment from Cat Taylor - both a MoveGB member and a happiness coach.
Here at Move we're real believers in the power of science - you'll find that the majority of our articles are science backed.
