Welcome back halo, son of getbig.

Or do you train it more and try to get it stronger? 

Just wondering, I have intermittent low back pain and for the most part take it easy but wonder if I am doing the wrong thing?

I am looking for an answer as well. I have been working in two shops for a total of 14 hours per day, that entails standing on concrete for the entire time.

I believe all that standing on concrete is the culprit, so I will try to sit when I can, as well as find some new inserts for my steel-toed work boots. But for now, my lower back feels tight and bruised.

If it's chronic back pain, and my back is not in a spasm, then yes, I workout around the pain.  If I stopped working out every time my low back nagged me, I'd never work out.

I recommend you do these every single morning after you get up from bed...well, after you pee.  It only takes a couple of minutes, but it works wonders for chronic low back pain.

Do you stand in one spot most of the time?  If so, then I recommend an anti fatigue mat like this one:

I do the bottom stretch between sets. I also do this thing that looks like a cat hunched back multiple times also between sets. I seen it used in yoga. It relieves the compression feeling in my back. I do it sitting down on the safety bar of the the rack while leaning over to not look like a weirdo.

ialso stretch my hip flexors and hammies real good before squatting.

My back is fucked...cant deadlift or back squat. But I can do front squats, light dumbell Romanians and walking lunges.

So yes, I work around injuries. I simply have to if I want to work out.

There are exercises and stretching movements designed to strengthen you "core" which helps with back pain. Unless you already know what is causing your back pain and have learned how to relieve it particularly from a professional physical therapist, this should be your first step. Ignoring or working through back pain without knowing what you are doing could cause your back some serious damage. An ounce of prevention.....

I have degenerative disk disease otherwise known as arthritis and old age compression of the spine. I am presently almost 3" shorter than I was at 18 years of age. Thanks to learning to do various exercises and stretching movements from North Lake Physical Therapy folks. I don't have back pain any longer. I highly recommend you see a physical therapist. Most medical insurance policies will pay for physical therapy if warranted.
