If you find that you prefer to slightly round your lower back in order to feel less pain, more strength, and greater ease then you may find this episode particularly enjoyable and beneficial. That is not to say that if you prefer to either not round &/or slightly arch your lower back that you should avoid it- just realize that the cues used regarding lower back placement may not be directed towards you specifically. That is the joy/challenge of group exercise: not everyone needs/benefits from the same thing. Learning about what works for you is a foundation to long term health and well being.
