A weak lower back is easily sprained

Lower back pain is a common ailment of the internet warrior. The internet warrior ventures out into the depths of cyberspace in a sitting position. Their entire daily journey may be had without leaving the safety of the chair. Unbeknownst to us, while we're out in the world of bits, the world of atoms, specifically the atoms that make up our lower backs, is becoming weaker.

A weak lower back is easily sprained (source). Even a strong sneeze or a cough can be enough to cause a sprain or a strain in the supporting muscles in and around our lower backs if they’re already weakened by inactivity. That's why it's important to activate our muscles often. No matter how engaging our digital travels might be, it's important to engage the physical as well, if we want to be warriors in our day-to-day lives, too.
