i'd say hyperextensions, supermans, or look for a back extension machine at the gym.

superman...


Position Instructions:
Lie on your stomach with your arms straight and palms down.
Raise your arms 8 inches off the floor.
Hold your arms and shoulders in the air for 5 seconds.
Keep your toes stationary to the floor.
As your become stronger, try to increase your holding time by a few seconds.
Repeat this exercise 3 times.

you can also do supermans on a swiss ball using with your arm and opposite leg in the air and then switching. hyperextensions on a swiss ball will work too.

Rows. Seated low rows for example. If she has lower back problems go really light at first and increase the weight slowly.

Seated good mornings on a bench are definitely fun. I do these on my stretchy days with light weight. The hip and back stretch is out of sight, and it will work your lumbars and posterior chain without loading you up too much.

What's the matter with her back, Vito? Is it a disc issue or something that can be rehabbed? If it's fixable without surgery, a ton of bent-leg ab work can help correct the imbalance. Good luck, buddy.

EDIT: I just noticed the Hello Ladies thing in Vito's original message, and I would like to state that I feel like a pretty lady today.

*busted up laughing @ the computer*

Man, I am retarded.

Soccerchick: I had her try hyperextensions/supermans and it put to much strain on her neck. Not sure if her form was just bad and I wasn't catching it when I watched her.

Getnbgr: I have her doing seated rows also. Low weight to start etc.

sta63bmx: Her back problem has to deal with a few things, one a back strain which can be rehab with some exercise. 2)being over weight is putting a lot of strain on her back. 3)
Her abs arent' strong enough either to support her back.

So in a nut shell I have her doing core exercises for her abs and also Compound Movements for her lifting (which brings up some of the back problems because she can't do some of the exercises like Deads, squats, SLDL's etc..) and Cardio on a tread mill to help burn fat.

Oh by the way I am the Prettiest one!

Thanks for all your help everyone.

as as Jack Nicholson on Anger Management would say:

LALALALALA LA LA LALA!
I feel charming Oh so charming It's alarming how
charming I feel And so pretty That I hardly can believe I'm real See the pretty
girl in that mirror there? Who can that attractive girl be? Such a pretty face
Such a pretty dress Such a pretty smile Such a pretty me!

Man, pay attention [img]/forum/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

VITO said that HIS female partner can't do DLs. My partner CAN do them, he's just afraid of doing heavy lifts and learning techniques.

I said that my girlfriend uses hypers as her primary lower back exercise, and that my training partner does as well. And with that, I need to talk him into DLing, SLDLing, SLGMing, and GMing.

Maybe if you got an hour's worth of sleep one of these weeks, you'd be able to notice these things. But no, you're too busy partying, drinking beer, not squatting, and adding stickers to your car to do anything productive.

I was trying to pay attention, dude...when you said "He said DLs are out of the question" I thought you were talking about your W/O partner and what you were going to discuss. God, I need some sleep. And some vinyl tape so I can rice up my Beretta.

I gotcha now. I'm up to speed. Hopefully by 9 pm tonight, I'll be out of this toilet. Either that, or the air will finally be back on in my stupid lab!
