Cardio Without Running to Account for Back Pain



Other forms of cardio that are better for your back

Here is a list of cardio workouts that limit the amount of stress to your back: 

  • Swimming 
  • Elliptical
  • Cycling
  • Rowing
  • Walking
  • Body weight training

All of these activities give you a full range of cardio benefits while minimizing the trauma that your back incurs along the way. But variety is important: each of these activities will condition a specific set of muscles and exclude others. However, if you are suffering from back pain, it is important to make your sport account for your condition. Do not continue with a sport that is causing you pain.
