    I’m a spinal surgeon, but there’s never been a concise go-to article about how to strengthen your back.  In therapy places they had different exercises, but nothing was very to the point.

What are the key muscles people should focus on

The key to understanding your lower back is to focus on the core muscles.  The core muscles encompass the abdominal muscles, pelvic muscles, hip muscles and lower back muscles.  All of these muscles work together to provide all of your daily motion.  So proper body movement require a strong core.  The biggest misnomer is that when you work your abdomen, you work your core, but you’re really just working a third of your core.

When the core is weak, meaning one of the other muscles is not working properly, it can result in pain or injury.   We coined a phrase in the book called ‘back mindfulness’ and how crucial your back is for every move you take.  People have to understand that from the moment you wake up in the morning to when you go to bed at night, you’re using your back.
