Back Stretches + Exercises // For Lower Back Pain

Back Stretches + Exercises // For Lower Back Pain is a relaxing workout to stretch out your spine. Unlike many of Heather Robertson’s other workouts, this workout is done voice over. The exercises are not timed and there are no graphics. As mentioned in the other back workout reviews I am posting today I decided to do an all Heather Robertson back workout. I created a folder/playlist specifically for this morning’s workouts and stacked the workouts I planned to do in the order I planned to do them so they played straight through from beginning to end. I started with her Sexy Back // Resistance Band Workout followed with The BEST Exercises to Target Back Fat. Then I did At Home Back Workout with Dumbbells and ended the everything with this relaxing spine focused stretch. Overall, it was an excellent back workout!

Back Stretches + Exercises // For Lower Back Pain is 11 minutes; 1 minute intro and the last 25 seconds is Heather talking.
