What is a Kinesiologist
Kinesiologists are human movement specialists that provide services to the public through the application of sciences such as anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and psychomotor behaviour (BCAK). Practitioners are required to have completed four-year university kinesiology degree (or equivalent).

Isometric Lower Back Exercises
A more advanced strengthening exercise for your low back involves using a large Swiss ball between your legs and a small Swiss ball between your arms.
What you simply want to do is get back into focusing on your stomach muscles. Contract them into a nice 30, 40 percent, move the ball slightly up in the air. Can scratch your large gluteal muscles in the bum and get that Swiss ball, and get it up into a nice sort of upwards forward position, resting slightly on your elbows.
What you want to be thinking about is contracting your lats in your back there, holding the ball up in a nice steady position, just holding that for 10, 15, 30 seconds. You can build up over time. Most exercises that involve strength you want to be thinking about them from a week to month standpoint to getting longer at the motion.
You never want to be thinking, you know, starting an exercise, getting up to a long holding position after one or two days. The body just doesn’t have that capacity in it.
As you get older you want to be thinking about lengthening out the time that you take and getting more advanced at doing a strength exercise.
