    You want to build your posterior chain, not just your lower back. Deadlifts and squats are great, but you also want exercises that do not affect your CNS to that extent but give you benefit. Reverse Hypers, Hypers, Glute Ham Raises, Pullthroughs, Band Good Mornings, these are all good. Good Mornings are good as well, but you are going to need to watch volume as you rotate all this stuff around.

    Good info man!

    And remember that if you want to develop quality core strength, you're going to have to work your entire core, not just your lower back. Good core strength comes from strong abdominals and strong erector spinae (including lower back), among some other things. It's something that many people, including myself, have neglected or in some cases continue to neglect, so it's great that you're wanting to improve that area of your body.

    Good luck with your training!
