While it is technically possible to train the lower back 4 days a week, it's generally not recommended. The lower back is a sensitive region which is prone to injury if it is overworked. Strength training causes microscopic damage to the muscles, which then heal stronger than before. This healing and strengthening process requires rest, typically 48-72 hours, between targeted workouts. Without adequate rest, one may confront consistent muscle soreness, fatigue and risk of injury. Therefore, it would be healthier and more effective to limit lower back exercises to two or three times per week, allowing at least one rest day in between. It can depend on several factors like your fitness level, experience, age, and the intensity of your workout. It's always best to consult with a certified fitness professional or physical therapist about personalized exercise routines. Remember that proper technique and form can help prevent injuries, so it could be better to focus on quality of exercise rather than quantity.
