If you've got back pain that you can literally put your thumbs right on I'm gonna show you how to get rid of that today and more importantly give you a strategy for making sure it does not come back ever again what's up guys jeff cavaliere athleanx.com here with Jesse and Raymond if you if you're looking for a way to get rid of that back pain now I'm talking about the type that you can literally put your finger right on right well you can feel it and sometimes even by putting your finger there it shoots pain down into your butt - there's something you can do about it you need to first of all start identifying what it is though properly because it really isn't low back pain we're not talking about the muscles here or the low back even though you might feel some of that pain up there really what we're talking about is a glute medius and this is a rampant problem and one of those caused by a lot of sitting and a lot of things that were maybe even doing wrong in the weight room but first of all we want to make sure that we're all talking about the same thing and right here if you look on and Raymond the glute medius is this muscle that runs right up under here okay it's actually underneath the glute max and it attached it's just on the inside of this bony area here that we're gonna call the PSIs now why does that matter because big bony areas make it really easy to feel and find out and make sure that you are on the same spot so if we look here on Jesse if you lean forward you can then rub your hands across the low back and you should instantly be able to feel two spots where the bones are sticking out and that is exactly that same area that I just showed you on the skeleton if you're running your fingers just to the outside and that's where you get all that increase in paying attention then we are talking about the same thing and this is what we're gonna be able to take care of right now all right so what's the muscles supposed to do for you anyway two things the first is you should be able to use it to abduct your hip meaning to lift your hip up and out to the side the only thing that's even more important is that with every step you take its job is to make sure that your pelvis stays level because we know that when we lift one leg the body wants to fall in that direction meaning the hip on this side wants to fall out this way right so it wants to instead if the muscles working right keep your pelvis level so that it's not doing this there's something called a Trendelenburg gait that when your hips can't do this you start to look like show them Jesse yeah sort of like that right but it starts to drop on every step you don't want that to happen but here's what's even bigger if you lift weights and you squat the problem is I can almost guarantee you that when you start to get this pain at some point it's because you do not have an equal distribution of weight through both of your legs and we can test that very very easily and you're probably going to be very shocked by what you see just stand with your feet pretty much shoulder-width apart like here now when you go all you want to do is just lift one leg up off the ground if I lift the left leg I can do that okay not a problem if I have to lift my right leg I have to almost shift my weight too much a lot more significantly than I did on the other side if you have to shift your weight or if you even see that your shoulders sort of move a lot to one side in order to get your weight off of that foot then you do not have an equal distribution and what's going to happen there is you're going to cause imbalances that will start to rear their ugly head in the form of this more frequent back pain and we can eliminate that when you squat you want to have equal distribution so now the most important thing is fixing the damn thing right so if we come down on the ground I'm going to show you exactly how we can do this and get rid of it right now and more importantly some exercises you can do to strengthen it so it doesn't come back again okay so the fix for this is actually pretty easy to do and most importantly quick because if you find this and you do it right you're gonna feel relief right away so you take your finger and you put it your thumb you put it right up on that spot okay I can't draw dude let's go so you put your hand you wish you you put your thumb right on that spot okay from here now all you're gonna do is use your own pressure from your hand and then move your leg in a certain direction okay now you what you don't want to do is you don't want to start reaching for a lacrosse ball and putting it underneath you because when you're in pain you're already inflamed you're putting too much pressure on this area it's likely to resist what you're trying to do and not help you to fix it okay in this case you want to use the top down pressure that you can control so once your fingers on that spot you're going to take your leg through the
