Putting an End to Back Problems

Most people who suffer from back problems don’t have to. The trick to getting miraculous results is not in the stretching. Although stretching is part of the process along with light cardio to heat up the lower lumbar. The fact is (and it’s a shame not to know this), strength training is what’s most effective. The solution is in building the muscles around the injury.

You may not be able to work the damaged area (or do anything at all) for a day or two or three after the injury. But then therapy is necessary. You can rid yourself of the stiffness and bring relief to chronic back problems (slipped disc, spinal fusion, sciatic) by adding the following quick-to-do exercises to your daily routine.

Super-set crunches with Super-mans. Roll onto your stomach. Raise arms above your head like you’re flying through the air. Lift up your limbs off the floor. Hyper-extend so that only your pelvis is touching the mat. Hold for 30 seconds. Down for 15 seconds. Do 6 sets before going back to your crunches. Do 3 more rounds of 6 set of Super-mans.

Another one. You need a Bosu Ball (one of those 1/2 ball thingies that are flat on one side). Put your pelvis on the Bosu Ball. Have someone hold your feet. Hyper-extend for 30, 50, or 100 reps with hands on chest. Times 3. Now back to your crunches.

One more option. Some of you may know the slanted upright bench just inside System’s in the corner to the left of the cardio area. I call it the Hangover Bench because you hang over it. You may do your obliques on it. Put your pelvis on the pads. Bench over, go down as deep as your back can safely handle, come back up and hyper-extend slightly. Hyper-extend your butt off.

Or, better still, you can hire me. And I’ll show you how.

Why Use a Dehydrator

For bread. For chips. For falafel balls. For all your meat-like substitutes that aren’t “fake” at all. Master the dehydrator, and you’re entered a rarefied stratosphere. Perhaps people ate like this thousands of years ago – before recorded history – and had lifespans of hundreds of years. They decided, hey, let’s try collecting plants and nuts today instead of the gory business of running down some poor creature. They slept in the forest – and dehydrated fabulous meals on a rock in the clearing.

If your diet is too spartan, you’re not going to keep to it. This diet about creativity, abundance, and taste (last but not least). This diet is luxurious. And you’ll find, after you’ve eaten (and this is not a word of a lie) your body tingles  The debate is over. There is no more disputing it. There is nothing healthier. Nothing  is going to make you look younger and more beautiful and thinner. And, when done properly, there is nothing more delicious.

I’m getting myself going. I think I’ll dehydrate something – and have a raw day this week. Have one with me. If you’re not ready to tackle the dehydrator, go to Rawlicious or Live for your main meal of the day.

And then, I’ll tell you something about using the dehydrator to your best advantage. But you still have to come to my cooking classes in the fall – after renos to the studio. You have to promise.
