Can you please let us know a good alternative to the superman exercise? February 17, 2020 Reply lilrascalish Bob and Brad, you crack me up (pun intended) 😂😂😂. Great info tho because when I was part of a workout group, those were the exact exercises they put us to do until I had to quit due to severe back pain. Lo and behold, I was diagnosed with spondylitis 🤷🏼♀️. February 17, 2020 Reply Danny Spitzer My back hurts just thinking about doing these February 17, 2020 Reply Bk Jackson Almost no one recognizes them for being hard on the back. They are all still VERY prevalent exercises, even among fitness professionals. One thing I can say, PT's will never lack patients. I just happened to see a video of a guy doing really deep squats with a humongously loaded barbell–and I just don't get it. I love weight lifting, but SANE weight lifting. Is the risk of blowing up body parts REALLY worth lifting super-excessive amounts of weight? But I digress… February 17, 2020 Reply Build Your Game Hockey Training Great stuff, boys! I have to say, I'm not surprised about the supermans. I've always done then without lifting my legs up because it seems to instantly make my back spasm. I wasn't clear, though, are they just as bad for your back if you do them without the leg raise? February 17, 2020 Reply HoneyDew * Lol😂😂😂. My brother is like that too all dressed up sleepin' in ties lol. February 17, 2020 Reply Rebirth Resurrection Stop insulting yourselves. and be more militant and desire to exist.

Love you two…watch you a lot and forward to others .I DO agree …have had a lifetime of dancing, in my seventies and still dance more than many young people and teach too…and i have had issues with these myself.

February 17, 2020 Reply Kristian Bala ouuuch.. February 17, 2020 Reply PATRICIA DAVENPORT My doctor always makes me touch my toes so I told her NO, cuz it’s too hard, I’m 5 ft 11 in & a gut, overweight and 70, so what’s the point of having to do it, cuz I don’t know the answer to that!!! Maybe you can tell me. 👍🏻👍🏻👵🏼 February 17, 2020 Reply ForgiveAndLove09 What if we do the superman one with single legs. One leg up at a time? I didn’t know this one was high risk. I will stop it. But the single leg still high risk? I really respect these type of videos. We need it. February 17, 2020 Reply Linda Lanasa Some of the exercises you show we do to strengthen the belly to support the back. So what exercise do you recommend to strengthen the back? February 17, 2020 Reply Linda Lanasa 😂 So a ball gown for an appointment with Bob would be appropriate 😂 February 17, 2020 Reply J & R Cameron I love you guys and watch your videos all the time! I am a triathlete, yogini and a dancer and really use your tips. Toe touches/forward bends and Superman pose are encouraged by many yoga instructors so I need to re-think them. The " windmill " is one that many of my dance teachers love to use along with a torso rotation as a warmup move. Personally, I think this movement is really dangerous esp. in warmup- it feels terrible so I have to believe my body is telling me something even if it does look very "dancey". Just not worth blowing a disk. February 17, 2020 Reply Mike James - Drummer, Regina, Canada How about planking? February 17, 2020 Reply Snap At A Chat I love you guys. You seem like genuinely good people who want to help people. It's awesome. February 17, 2020 Reply marlene kerrmarlene I used to always have back trouble when I slept on my stomach and when I was younger always used the twister board ,also bad February 17, 2020 Reply M H Thank you ! February 18, 2020 Reply Tom Sawyer Anyone want to weigh in on working out with kettlebells? Good /Bad? February 18, 2020 Reply Nwakalor Michelle what exercises can be used as substitute and how do these exercises affect the low back (the structures affected and mechanisms of action) February 18, 2020 Reply Sweet Stuff Agreed! February 18, 2020 Reply Melanie Gibson There are probably moisture wicking shirts that have suits or tuxedos printed on them so you can wear them to the gym, look like James Bond while you are working out, and then go save the world afterward. But on a more serious note – most of these exercises are definitely not a good thing to do if you are already having trouble with low back pain; you need to work on strengthening the core muscles first so you can take some of the strain off the muscles in the lower back and be patient with yourself. For me, it took a few years and that is because I was following yoga routines at home. I learned how much of a range of motion I could tolerate, got some stuff to loosen up, and didn't try to force any of the poses. Occasionally I do something that feels fine at the time until the next day when my back & neck tell me that they are not happy about it, but not very often. It's pretty cool feel like I am aging in reverse, sort of – everyone else is starting to have joint stiffness or other medical problems, and while I do have some issues that I have to be wary of aggravating it is nice to be able to have such flexibility in my 50s. February 18, 2020 Reply Un Known I stopped my exercise classes because I had crippling back pains the next day. Guess what? we did all of the exercises shown here. In fact the touch toes one was a 90 degree bend with arms extended straight out not down. No wonder my back is in in spasm 6 months on! February 18, 2020 Reply mark carter I have a shooting pain in my right buttock when I move it a certain way. Sometimes when I walk, I also feel a shooting pain on the right side from halfway below my knee to my ankle. Can you tell me what it is & what exercises to do to make the pain go away permanently? I walk to work (5 miles+ on weekdays) & almost everywhere else & I’d hate to lose this form of transportation because of injury/pain. February 19, 2020 Reply Kristjan Jonsson Love you guys!!!
