You might remember that back when I started Freeletics, I was experiencing a fair amount of lower back pain. I thought it was a combination of long-haul flights, sitting down for my job, and possibly performing the exercises wrong.
Over the past couple of weeks, that lower back pain has almost disappeared. I feel stronger and have more stamina. I think this is probably due to strengthening my core, and my body getting used to the workouts. It feels great!
I’ve also worked in a bit of yoga into my stretches at the end of each workout, which is really helping with my flexibility.
I think this reduction in pain is absolutely connected with making sure I’m hydrated and that I warm up before and stretch properly afterwards.
Having said all that, I’m about to get on a long-haul flight, so it’s entirely possible I’ll be eating my words.
