I am doing core stabilization exercises for my lower back such as crunches, bridges, planks, lunges, squats. What is the best way to increase the reps in my workout? If I am doing 5x5 do I increase it to 5x6 or do I jump to 5x10 the next day? What if I am doing something for 2 mins? Do I increase each workout by 1 min? I am also looking for suggestions on good videos or instructions on the proper way to do these exercises.

Moderator comments - Excercise programs designed to treat spine pain should be guided by a licensed physical therapist or your doctor, to ensure that the proper techniques are used, and the proper excercises. We can not recommend quantity of reps, or excercises.
