5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stretching and Abs exercies!, 10 Aug 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: The BackSmart Fitness Plan: A Total-Body Workout to Strengthen and Heal Your Back (Paperback)
My wife actual bought this book based on recommendations from her physical therapist and Chiropractor. She had been suffering from bouts of back and neck pain on and off for years and after our children were born she felt she had very little time to workout and she gain weight and her back pain flared up on her more often. After following the Backsmart program for the past two months she has lost weight and feels much better and stronger throughout the entire day which is a first in a very long time. I saw her results and I had to give it a try, since I have always been competitive in team sports like softball and basketball and I go to the gym a least 3 times per week year round doing a full body workout each time. Over the past 2 years I have been entering some local Triathlon events and doing fairly well in my age category but I notice my hamstrings were always sore afterwards and tight during my runs and my upper back would get stiff after the rides. I began the chapter with the wall stretches and immediately felt my muscle in my upper back relax and I felt more range in my shoulders and legs too. I started adding in the abs exercise which were tuff for me at first I could really feel my midsection working right through the entire set. I liked that the program offered different abs workouts each day, I haven't gotten tired of doing them like most exercise programs and I feel my midsection has gotten firmer as a result. A few years back my wife and I tried the Body for life program and we got good results with that but this Backsmart Fitness system has a lot more exercises and are very effective so we are doing the low carb Mediterranean diet and following this program since we both feel great , we recommend it to all are friends.
