cuddy you give me hope you must be coming apart at the seams by the sound of it.haha i used to go to the gym but just think its a watse of money i do go to a thing called bikram yoga. google it. its 1hr and half of yoga same poses every time but its done ina room that is about 70degrees the heat prevents you from hurting your mucles no matter how hard you stretch it is hard tho very. more like yoga circuts its mental. the physcio today did tellme my core was wick and to fix it is to stand withmy back agaisnt a wall flat and lift a stick in the air. even when she was teling me to do it i was like you haven a laff

Cuddy
Yes, sometimes I think my right foot is hanging on by a thread! :-P

I'd like to try bikram but the place by my house is not very nice, the staff is a bit rude. I've just got two new yoga DVDs by Shiva Rea so can't wait to do those, the one I have is brilliant. If I don't do yoga for a while I start hobbling around with very tight calves and achilles! Which is right about now :-O

that yoga sound good.

you could def do with some ab strengthening advice. i can see why the physio advice didn't appeal! do you know anyone who could advise you? you need to start small but you will probably progress really quickly.

thinking about it you could try the 100 sit up challenge (but they are crunches really) and that has a demo of how to do a proper crunch that works the abs but doesn't involve the back.

Stumpy
*coughs politely*
seriously, mate, strength work on your core, glutes and possibly ankles could well help. I have a feeling you probably also need to stretch out and get some good massage on your hip flexors. If they are sore pulling knees to chest or if rolling in a ball pulls your lower back, your flexors are likely to be too tight as they attach inside the pelvis at the back and can therefore put strain on yr lower back if you don't have appropriate core strength (voice of experience here) the fact you do lots of full sit ups, which use hip flexors and strains lower back also suggests you need core strength. Get your phys to teach you to engage core in a way you can identify with as the standing against the wall doesn't seem to inspire you.

Honestly your story is similar to mine and it does all come back to appropriate core strength. Unfortunately it is hard work with no short cuts Good luck! :-)

i've just peeked at your profile page - don't be competitive about it when you do the test!!! find the right level for you and go from there.

yes i know i'm a bossy duck :)

Marc, I'm Finnish, we do sauna at 100 degrees, we do sweat a bit in the process ;-)

And listen to Stumpy, the pigeon pose might be a good one to open up the hips plus some pilates core work can't do any harm to add in.

Clueless
I agree with the core work being crucial. I had an undiagnosed back problem which referred down the legs a few years ago - came down to crappy core strength in the end.
