I am really struggling with excercise. I have had an ongoing problem with a tight IT band for a long time and didn't really address it until last year. After about 6 months of chiropractic and massage, I finally had it under control and was able to sleep without pain and to excercise. I have over 100 lbs to lose and I am in bad shape generally so it is hard enough to get going. After only a month back at the gym, taking it easy, being cautious etc. I stupidly went on an elliptical machine for only 5 minutes and now I'm right back to square one; barely able to walk, can't sleep without waking up in pain every 3 hours. I am so disheartened...it feels like I am pushing a ball uphill.
Anyone else face similar challenges with excercise? If you have any good quad stretchs that you can share, I'd appreciate it. (Esp. any that are done with assistive devices such as chairs since I have a very limited range of motion right now)
