Despite accepted conceptions that working out every day is bad for you,i.e.,you need a 24hr rest beliefs.I believe the opposite,a hr.or so a day of whatever you've set your mind to do that day like day #1 powerlifting,day #2cardio, day#3simple lifting freeweights day#4 a mixture of the above or something of the like,then lather rinse repeat all week.The more I push myself,the less I _'sweat'_doing the easy stuff(like mowing the lawn).How about you guys?.....I know when I take time off its alot harder coming back !

I alternate days. Chest and arms one day, then legs and torso the next. That way each muscle group is getting a rest day even though I'm at the gym every morning. Seems to be working.

If a situp is a 'curl' then working the lower back is the 'extension' that compliments it.
and what exercises you do for it?

I usually use a Roman Chair while holding a 45# plate, but when my sinuses are acting up I use a Nautilus-type cable/weight stack machine.

...ED....my friend...I've tried these things called 'good-mornings' for lower back....they do make you sore.A straight bar,held palm up,knees slightly flexed,body at 45* angle,something like a bent over row.You can find it on the exrx.net.
