      It is so weird that when I was in school I jogged and lifted weights but my younger sis hated exercise. Now she exercises and I don’t.  

      I do need/want to get back into some kind of shape. I have a herniated disk in my lower back and just can’t seem to do much without some pain.  

      Does anyone out there have/had the same problem and how did you get around it and get back into exercise?

        • Hi Kathy,
          I would consult your doctor and get some guidelines for exercises you can do at home. You can also take that info to a personal trainer and get a few sessions to get you started.

        • I use a great program called ‘T-Tapp‘.  It is all done standing - rather than floor work - which is easier on your back.  I LOVE it.

          You can do it just about anywhere you have about 2 feet of space!  It also has an amazing support website with a discussion board.

        • I have spinial stenosis, and exercise has not been for me for years. I have consultated my Doctor, and small walks have been helping me.It may take a long time for me to get into any kind of shape, butI keep trying. Some days are herder than others, and some are uplifting to get some kind of exercise. Take everything one day at a time, and don’t give up. Make sure you talk to your Doctor first.   :)
