Back injury is not only uncomfortable and inconvenient, it can be excrutiatingly painful to the point where it may leave you incapacitated.
In most cases the causes of back pain are due to lifting heavy objects or because of making abrupt movements, so bear this in mind the next time you work out.
High risk back injury workouts include:
Running is a high-impact exercise - the faster you run, the harder your feet hit the ground and this repetitive jarring is very hard on the joints and the spine.
Pulling on the neck while crunching hurts the upper back and the lower back gets hit as your hip flexors pull on the spine to raise your upper body off the ground.
Also be on back-alert when doing these exercises.
