Correcting Loss of Lumbar Curve


So here’s what’s gonna happen: I’m gonna show you how Courtney can help herself with this plate. Now I’m not gonna have her rely on this plate, but she’s just gonna hold it out. I wanna see a squat, looking through the
hole, putting her butt back, all the way down, and then come on back
up. Now, this is a 15-pound plate so it shouldn’t be an arm exercise. Can you grab a 10-pound plate for me, Jenna? This is gonna be a lot of
assistance for her, but where are our eyes? They’re right on the lower back. So bring that plate up for me, Courtney, and squat, hips back and down. Push your knees out. Good, stay there, now chest up a little more. Good, now come up a little higher, not too much, a little lower. There! But now what I want to see is is
there any improvement on the initial squat that we put in? Is she still rounding as excessively as
before or can we get her in a better position by herself? So Courtney, you’re gonna do one more squat for me but you’re gonna go slowly, OK? So put those arms up. And try not to do this, Courtney, because it rounds your back. Hands wide. And slowly down, watch that back, slowly, slowly, slowly, chest up, chest up, chest up. Yeah! And stand. Was it better than the
initial one? If you don’t agree, you can say “No, it wasn’t.” I think so, too, it was better. Now where do we take Courtney from here? We have her keep doing that work. I’m
gonna show you guys squat therapy at the end, but I’m really happy with where Courtney
is and, better yet, she feels where she should be.
