Are you frustrated with a painful low back that limits your movement or squat mechanics? Or annoying, recurring discomfort that flares up after workouts?

It's estimated that approximately 80% of the population struggles with low back pain at some point in their lives. Even more frustrating: many peoples' pain is "non-specific", meaning there's no obvious mechanical issue that's causing it! Back pain is a complex issue, and so it requires a nuanced approach that goes beyond just "strengthening the core".

This course is for you if:

  • you have recurring low pain
  • certain movements predictably cause flare-ups
  • are unsure how to "engage your core"
  • don't know how to maintain appropriate mobility
  • deal with chronic stiffness or feel limited in your range of motion
  • stretching provides temporary relief, but doesn't solve the issue for good
  • poor low back function is limiting you in your workouts
  • go through cycles of tissue irritation that come and go
  • need better tools to improve post-workout recovery
  • want to maintain low back health post-injury

Kaari programs take a comprehensive and gradual approach to building strength and function. Even more importantly, we give you the tools and knowledge to maintain your low back health so that you can enjoy the activities you love, pain-free.

Here's what to expect:

  • an average of 15-25 minutes of exercises/ day, 12 week program
  • easy-to-complete movements: simply follow along with videos of each exercise
  • minimal equipment needed
  • a science-informed approach to build strength safely and gradually
  • learn to move efficiently and improve your movement mechanics
  • targeted myofascial release to alleviate common tension spots, aid recovery, boost tissue hydration and improve range of motion
  • built-in guided recovery and relaxation, because that's where the gains happen!

Training good function, from all angles.

Our program covers all the bases to train a low back that is both mobile and strong: 

  • achieving good range of motion throughout the spine
  • learning to both stabilize and articulate the spine
  • teaching the relevant muscles to engage and support the low back
  • progressive overload: gradually adding challenge to build strength
  • learning to create and maintain muscular support through movement, since this is ultimately how we want our joints to work in real-life situations!
  • addressing other factors that may be contributing to pain, such as high stress levels, postural habits, and poor body awareness

An injury-proof low back: it's a team effort.

To create true resilience and good function in the low back, we of course want to train the muscles that create direct support for the lumbar spine so that they can handle the demands of the activities you love, as well as the challenges of daily life. But for true durability, we need to zoom out even more: all the areas around the low back affect its function as well! Factors such as suboptimal pelvic stability, poor body awareness, limited mobility in the upper back, chronically tense muscles, and even high stress levels can all contribute to low back pain.

This is why our program addresses all the big picture issues that can affect the function of the low back.  Everything in the body is connected, so the whole team needs to get on board for the low back to work efficiently!

Also a team effort: your interaction with us. Leave comments and ask questions on any of the exercise videos so that we can support you through your program.

Challenge + recovery = a strong, healthy spine!

In order to strengthen any muscle, joint or region of the body, we need to first apply some challenge, and then let the tissues rest and prepare for the next workout. Without adequate recovery, we never give ourselves time for the strengthening adaptation to occur, and just end up spinning our wheels without making progress.

Here at Kaari, we take recovery VERY seriously! You can expect your program to include myofascial release techniques, light mobility work, and accessible relaxation techniques, all built into your daily exercises to help you recharge your batteries.

A little bit about myofascial release

Myofascial release is a safe and pleasant technique that we love including in our programs! Myofascial release:

  • is an excellent way to maintain range of motion and tissue health
  • boost muscle recovery and increase hydration
  • provides a wonderful opportunity for nervous system recovery- a crucial part of our overall wellbeing, ability to move well and feel good in your body
  • can act as both a pre-workout warmup or cool down, making it a versatile tool to have in your mobility maintenance toolkit
  • equips you with personalized techniques to maintain tissue health well beyond the end of your program

Our programs are proud to exclusively use RadRoller myofascial release tools- we’ve found these to be the most versatile and high quality implements out there. With a variety of sizes and degrees of firmness to choose from, you can select something that will work for your unique body. Additionally, all RadRoller tools have a pleasant anti-slip surface that makes it easy to keep the tools in place. Plus, you'll get a discount when you shop with the link above!

For recovery purposes, we recommend the Recovery Rounds, which have a nice amount of give to them, making for a gentler and more relaxing experience. We also love the classic Rad Roller- perfect for common tension spots around the neck, shoulders and upper back. 

Psst! Want to get rid of your low back pain, but not quite ready to commit to a 12-week program?

Totally understandable. In that case, you might consider our 4-week low back pain program. While it's not as comprehensive as the full program, it offers practical tips for immediate pain relief, strengthening techniques to improve your low back function, and a more condensed approach to manage discomfort on a day-to-day basis.
