Hi Leslie, your question about weights is a good one. Just go ahead with light ones. You should feel a 'burn' in your low back muscles doing the exercise, but not to the point of strain. Always exercise behind that point. when in doubt, put the weights down adn continue with bodyweight only. Just as we listen to our horses as we ride, it's important to listen to your own body. How has the exercising been going? Did you want to sign up for the free fittips newsletter I send out?
Hi Leslie...my response to your question is posted. Thanks for posting hte question! I hope the blog is helpful. Don't hesitate to post any clarifying questions in the comments to the blog. Again, if you end up wanting to develop a full program, we could do that outside this forum.
Hi Leslie- thanks for submitting your question to the blog! I'll be doing this week's blog shortly and will use your questions. I see you joined the site to post the photos, so I really want to applaud you for bravely doing so. I hear all the time that people enjoy the blog- but were 'just not into' (aka chicken) to post their photos. Anyway, you have some great questions, and I have some ideas in response. I was wondering by the way if I might use your photos elsewhere in articles I write in case I need some postural shots similar to yours.
