Basically any bodyweight exercise that works your core will help strengthen your lower back as well.

Single leg deadlift. Seems it might be a winner. Haven't got up to give it a go yet. Ya reckon it'll strengthen my lower back muscles "gently" huh?

OK. just had a go at it. Seems harmless. I like it. Thanks. Got any more exercises I can do to get a bit of conditioning before reaching for that kettlebell again?

Sorry Jen but coach-Youtube has ample instructions. It's not a lack of skill but a lack physical conditioning that's my problem

Here's an article you might also find helpful:

Kettlebells can be a great workout, but the risk of injury is high if you're new to it and not doing the movements with proper form. I would recommend going to a class with a trained instructor at least a few times until you're sure you are doing the movements correctly, and then perhaps you can move on to doing the workouts on your own at home.

Hope that helps,

I am 60years male & severely overweight. And of course unfit. After much googling I have invested in a kettlebell (30lbs) for weight loss exercise - specifically deadlifts & swings. So far with a calorie diet alone I have lost 35lbs, 285lb down to 250lbs with a final target of 155lbs.

Now the problem is my inactive lower-back does not think this exercising is a good idea and lodges a protest after lifting & swinging. So I need some exercises to get my lower-back into shape so I can move onto the Kettlebell deadlifts & swings. My only other equipment is a couple of latex resistance bands.

Can you guys suggest to me a pre-kettlebell exercise program to get into shape please.
