    I find this "training the core" quite fascinating when you consider that 2/3 of that is low back strength.

    we do all these fancy exercises like bridges, tons of various adaptations of ab work and lunges but nothing to specifically address the low back.

    now I cannot identify with one exercise that effectively strengthens the muscles of the low back.

    can anyone?

    having said all that, I do not believe that ab work contributes to strengthening the core, and in fact can make things worse, I also believe that weak abs, if there is such a thing, is the cause of low back issues.

    one thing I've learnt about this industry is:

    If everyone heads west, you'd better go east, and pretty quick.

    I think that resistance training in general will take care of muscle strength, including the lower back muscles, I don't think that any smart person who has consistenly worked out with weights has a weak lower back
    Look after the dollars and the cents will take care of themselves

    Agreed Darko.
    If you do bent over rows for example, the lower back has no option but to strengthen itself or you wouldn't be able to hold the position.

    I also agree with you Goosey, a lot of your core strength is lower back as well as hip muscles and obliques. It's the whole middle region but for some reason the average punter only sees it as being abs.
    But a bridge (especially the yoga type bridges rather than a regular plank) will also train your lower back/ESG or you'd just fold in half.

    Yeah the ab's take care of themselves by becoming indirectly involved not only in weight lifting but in every physical effort.

    And while indirect does not trump direct the core doesn't need to be reminded "to engage" before every rep of an exercise it happen automatically and in fact the constant prompt may become a distraction

    the nervous system can only control so many muscles at once.

    i think that using a mix of exercises over many years of consistency is key for making sure that the lower back is strong not just in one position but throughout the ROM.

    Interestingly a man that has a short torso and long legs although not a good squatter will in fact have a stronger back due to the movement than a man with the opposite proportions.

    Yep, if you want abs no need to work abs.

    only specific exercise I do for lower back is hypers. today, 20 reps with 15kg plate behind neck after leg curls and quad training.
    I can't wait for Kevin Aitken to join World Powerlifting.
