Long driving days and inviting lawn chairs at the RV park can be your back’s worst enemy. Too much sitting is hard on our backs, and can leave us achy and stiff.

This video demonstrates 9 gentle back exercises that will increase your flexibility, strengthen your core, and combat back pain. The great thing about these back exercises is that you don’t need any equipment! Just a wall or counter for balance, and you’ll be good to go. A perfect back workout for staying fit on the road.

      Had on my list of “to-do’s” to find back exercises to take with me on my road trip to Goldie Palooza with the pup in April. DONE!!! Thank you so much

      Those are good back stretching exercises that I’ll have to try. I am going to try and fit a diamondback 910ub upright bike (23″x 39″, I think) and a BOSU balance ball in my 2016 Nissan NV 3500 High Roof (kind of FitRV set up 😉 But with a 650cc motorcycle, bathroom, and all, it’s going to take some ‘boot-strap’ optimizing to fit it all in there.

      Thanks for your exercise guidance and James’ mechanical brilliance. I need all the help I can get!

        That’s fantastic you’re including a BOSU! Absolutely love BOSU training! Good for you for making fitness a priority on the road. It really has to stay non-negotiable if we want to age well. xoxo
