    Hurt lower back and hip on left side doing bent leg raises. I was keeping back flat to the floor and using what I thought was perfect form. Anything I can do to build up weak areas and rehab injury?

    Firstly, I’d suggest seeing a good chiropractor or physical therapist.

    Here’s a tutorial by our friend Ryan at Gold Medal Bodies on the hollow body hold:

    If you can work on this progression without pain, I would suggest that. As it’s an isometric, you may be able to use it as a sort of stretch that builds strength, kind of like a back bridge. Which reminds me, try to work on the bridge progressions if you can do so pain free. You might also want to try wall sits, especially if your squatting has been affected as well.

    If all of that stuff still causes you pain, then seeking professional help is probably your best bet.

    Hey thanks robby,

    yeah think will work on hollows and maybe planks with some leg circles thrown in. Will definitely work bridges as well.

    cheers
