4. Working Out After a Day at the Office
Many people like to spend a few hours at the gym after sitting in their cubicle or office the entire day, believing that it will keep them in shape despite how long they spent sitting around at a desk. While it might keep you fit, it also leads to an increased risk hurting your lower back.
By suddenly working out at a gym and committing yourself to the speedy and dynamic movements of CrossFit, you risk hurting your hip flexors, causing them to stiffen which in turn leads to recurring lower back pain. This condition is known as stiff iliopsoas, which is the connector of the two muscles that connect your hip and thigh with your spine and femur. To avoid this, it is best to stick to slower and steadier movements after a long day of rest.
