You may have noticed however that after a few days of intense exercise your lower back begins to hurt. This is because your lower back muscles are directly related to your front hip flexors, abs, and glutes. If you have been neglecting these muscles when stretching you will soon feel it in your lower back. Read as much as you can about the physiology of the lower back and include stretching exercises to prevent lower back pain.
