Make Love To Your QL

Comments (33)

The Quadratus Lumborum, aka QL, is considered by some sources to be the deepest muscle of the low back, while other sources label it the deepest muscle of the abdomen. Whichever point of view you take, fatigue and soreness in this muscle tends to manifest as low back pain. Low back pain can be daunting, but have no fear – you just need to learn how to make love to your QL! Your Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Balls are especially helpful with this task, and are my personal favorite means of relief. When massaging the low back with the Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Balls, they work their way from the most superficial low back muscles such as the serratus posterior inferior, all the way into the deep quadratus lumborum muscles! The YTU Therapy Balls also provide a whole lot of love to the connective tissue lining the low back. So the next time your QL is causing pain, just pull out your YTU Therapy Balls and follow along with Jill in this self-massage for the low back (and find it and more Quadratus Lumborum exercises on the Quick Fix for Lower Back video):
