I'm new to the primal lifestyle and am still doing my old workout (yoga/occasional jogging), but would like to incorporate more primal movement. Problem: I have a weak back (thanks genetics) and have thrown it out just from lifting 10 lbs the wrong way. My mother has had back surgery previously and my aunt has permanent nerve damage and limps because she lifted something the wrong way. I know there are back strengthening exercises I could do, but does anyone have any suggestions? I know my genes are not necessarily my fate but I would rather not risk losing my mobility. Thanks!
