BMX Yoga for Back Pain – Our BMX

Not the most thrilling video, but I’m literally dealing with a lower back injury right now, so this really hit home. Shout out to Ooti for putting this together.

I’ve been dealing with incapacitating back pain from riding since I was 18. Sometimes it lasts for up to a week. It’s super frustrating as well as depressing to get perpetually laid up doing the thing you love when you’re not even eating shit and just doing your normal stuff. I’ve always followed the mindset that a strong core helps with lower back pain and it does but I recently discovered that two of the core workouts I’ve been doing the last 12 years have actually been making my lower back pain worse. After dealing with even more back pain than usual lately I went on an obsessive research spree looking up workouts and stretches to alleviate lower back pain only to discover that what I was doing was making things worse (Leg lifts and situps… don’t do toe touches either). I made this video to share all the things I’ve recently learned that are making me feel like I’m 15 again. It’s incredible and I’m so excited to share this with everyone. Feeling fully functional after dealing with incapacitating pain for over a decade is indescribable. Thanks for watching. -Ooti Billeaud
