I haven’t really lost it. but after blogging around a lot lately, I keep reading these little bitty comments  like, “think I need to head back to the gym,”   been so busy lately haven’t been outside,  need to watch my health,  not enough exercise…  so…maybe get motivated…

I was very lucky to find this video by Marc Perry the founder of Built Lean!

It is just what the doctor ordered!

    Hey Cararta,

    Those are great exercises and I wish they would work for me. Unfortunately, I have a sway back and have had it since I was young.

    My parents asked me when I was young if I wanted to wear a back brace which of course the doctor recommended. I said no so they didn’t make me wear it. They just knew I would take it off as soon as I got to school so why waste the money right!

    I wish they would have made me wear it because later in life I’ve regretted that decision.

      Hmmm think the exercises are for upper back, not your lower back problem! mostly shoulders and stretching muscles in upper back and chest….

      something I need!

      The back is very flexible…bones and muscles with habits that can be changed. Check out Physical therapy lots of new stuff…you might be surprised.

      You sound like my nephew…he had his braces removed from his teeth…16 and went to the Orthodontist alone.

      Big row…but he won and now wishes he hadn’t!

    Hi Carata,
    Now I see how you did a 6 min post!
    I wish it was that easy every time!
    I just spent about 12 hours on a 5 min video…but it looks effortless.
    Anyway thanks for thinking about all of us bloggers out there sitting at our desks for unlimited hours a day. We need a break and what better way than to work on our posture while we take that break.
    Thanks for posting,

      Hi Tonya,
      Thanks for the thumbs up!
      I know I get involved in doing tooo many things at one time, spend endless hours working and forget about me.

      My Early New Years resolution is take care of Me so I can keep slaving…went looking for these exercises and think I found a great gift!

    Hey Cararta, that was a really great and informational video.

    I normally don’t notice it but after working for some time on my computer I do realize I’m all curved forward and always try to correct my posture but I normally do this when my back hurts already.

    Thanks for the reminder on getting back to do some exercise, I haven’t done much of that in a long time.

      Hi Sergio,

      You sneaked in when I wasn’t looking.

      My shoulders are getting all slumped over so I decided to find a cure.

      I got lucky, this guy is really good.

      Sent a link to a couple of friends who are going to try it as well.

      We need a sign, Body first, Mind Second and then become a computer slave!

      Keeping an eye out on your moving…

      Not in love with those jalousie windows in your Dad had them in his old house, but replaced them for security.

      Several ways to fix on the inside without damaging the door, or else get a really good alarm system!

      You still didn’t find the shaving stuff, or are you abstaining until the Launch is over?

    I have found a lot of resources for exercises.

    But I have woken up many days after a great workout the night before with back aches & pains.

    Do you have any recommendations for sleep techniques?

    • Cararta on January 5, 2013

      Hi Phil,
      What an interesting question!

      My personal thoughts about your problem is prevention! Moderation works with most things we do, including exercise. Unless you are training to be the next Mr. Universe then your “great workouts” shouldn’t be creating back aches and pain. Have someone check your exercise routine and techniques. Correctly making the right moves will make a difference.

      To state it simply, prevention is better than a cure. As for the sleep techniques…like most things we do to physically survive a routine works best…eat on a schedule and sleep on a schedule: usually the first suggestion you will get from a sleep expert. Set up a bedtime and stick to it even if you aren’t sleepy.
