Low back pain is one of the most common causes of morbidity, and functional and economic incapacity. It is currently the fifth leading cause of medical consultation, and according to epidemiological studies, between 65 and 90% of adults may suffer from lumbosciatalgia. Physical activity improves quality of life and reduces the symptoms of chronic pain. Assisted weight training consists of performing the sport under the guidance and supervision of a trained professional. This study aims to discuss the importance of assisted weight training in lumbosciatalgia. This is a literature review study, using the following databases: PubMed, Lilacs, and ScienceDirect, selecting 15 articles that best met the study criteria, published from 2014 to 2021. It is estimated that around 60% of the Brazilian population does not practice any physical activity. The best way to prevent future low back pain is to avoid resting, exercise within the proper limits, and be assisted by a professional. It can be concluded that exercise is important for lumbosciatalgia and low back pain, as it reduces inflammatory markers, causes analgesia, and is an excellent therapy for preventing future low back pain and improving the individual’s quality of life.
