Back is tight..

Do I need to stretch more to work this out? Sometime my lower back gets tight feeling, feeling sore if I bend over or move it in odd positions. It was more when I first started working out, and went away for a month or so...but I didn't workout for a week, then it just got tight on its own. I went and did a light set of back workout and deadlefts yesterday, now its screaming at me! Is there stretchs or a certain workout that will help improve this area?

I use to get these really bad after a leg workout with lunges. I found that doing a set of pulldowns for the back really helps, stretches it real good. Or, take about 50 lb dumbell in one hand and do some oblique side crunches. Work on getting that lower back more stronger, and that pain will be history....Try it and see....

Stretch and try working out your core on the same day.

Try stretching it more, as in, before and after workouts and first thing in the morning as well as before bed.

I've found this works best for my lower back:

Stand with your feet about 36 in. apart(more depending on how tall you are. I'm 5'10").
Slowly bend at the waist and place your palms on the floor or as far as you can go. You can also fold your arms and hang them in place, whichever feels like it helps more.
Hold for 10-12 seconds.

Follow this by keeping your feet in the same stance and reaching both arms to grab your ankle, heel or toe, however low you can go. Do one side at a time, holding for 10-12 seconds.
