Very little of practical use, but an interesting read
on 14 August 2014
While this in an interesting book, the exercise content is minimal.
I'm afraid I was a bit disappointed. Given the rave reviews, I'm actually a bit confused. The exercises are very simple. Really simple. Just spend some time on Youtube and you will find loads of back exercises on there. The actually exercises are tucked away in the centre of the book, surrounded by a lot of padding about back pain in general, comparing different treatments against each other. While all this is very well written, and the guy has clearly done his research, if, like me, you are suffering from acute back pain, you just want to cut to the chase and find something to FIX YOUR PAIN. I will be trying the exercises for the next month, and will let you know how I get on. But basically, it just seems to be this - get on all fours, raise diagonally opposite arm and leg straight. Repeat 20 times.
