Have you ever gotten up in the morning and experienced some unusual back pain?
After a long night’s sleep, you should wake up feeling well rested and energized. But sometimes that's just not the case; and you're not alone as morning back pain can be common.
This pain is usually the result of stiffness from long periods of rest or decreased blood flow from sleeping. After moving around, symptoms usually subside. While morning back pain can be periodic, some people experience it more often than others. I find it particularly worse when tension accumulates throughout the day, or after training it'll end up in my back or knees. I can keep a lot of that pain away just by doing these 3 exercises.
Follow along and let me show you my top 3 favourite stretches I do every night for my hips to remove the pressure and tension off my back and feel good upon waking up every morning.
PS. Know someone who could use our help? Don’t hesitate to share this with them!
