    Tightening Abs hurts lower back

    My lower back never hurts while I do any of my ab workouts. I mostly do the machines or I use a cable and do the crunches on my knees. During or after each set, my lower back never hurts. However, when I try to tight my abs in order to see if I'm gaining any progress, then my lower back hurts. I can't tighten my abs without my back hurting, it seems really weird. Maybe my lower back is tight and I need to stretch it and my hamstrings more.

    What do you guys think?

    where exactly is it hurting in your lower back? Is it off to the side or is it directly on your spine? And when you say lower back, how low? Also how does the pain feel? stabbing, radiating, burning, aching?

    I would say its in the middle and down by my discs above my tailbone (I'm not too familiar with anatomy). The pain is a cross between burning and aching. I actually pinched my sciatic nerve about 5 years back when I broke my foot. I had to wear a walking boot for a month and it threw my hips off which in turn pinched my nerve. I wonder if it could just be long term damage from that. What do you think?
