In brief: Core strengthening
You can improve the strength and tone of your abdominal muscles by focusing on core strengthening exercises such as planks and crunches.
Aquatic workouts using the resistance of the water can also help someone with back pain avoid worsening their back pain yet still gain strength and stability.
