Yes, the sensation only occurs when the lower back is pressed – either while lying on the ball or I can replicate it by pressing with my thumbs. I have in the past sometimes suffered lower back/glute pain on the bike but that has always been a conventional sore muscle feeling, quite different from this shooting/electric sensation. On the other hand, both have been worse on the left side so it seems they may be related.
Thank you for linking that glute smash video – I can already see that looks ideal! I’ll mix it into my routine starting this evening.
