I loved this article. I have oesteoarthritis and the exercises and suggestions from the article on how to decrease knee pain was very helpful. I have saved the article in my favorites so I can refer to it each day.

I've managed to stretch my back, but not because of working out! I lifted something heavy.
I've got a problem with my right knee, it acts up from time to time. The joint is the problem.

Me, too! Feet and ankles. Makes some of the exercises really hard to do.

While I agree at most of this content, I for sure dont agree with the title. YES. No pain, No gain. That is just the truth. It is painful to go from a 4,000 calorie diet everyday to a 1500. IT IS painful to do those lunges, back extensions and leg lifts! IT IS painful to do cardio that raises your heart rate to a fat burning rate. Fact of the matter, if a person's muscles are not tone and lean, it hurts. It SHOULD hurt - NOT a lot. But enough to say ...oooo, that hurts. If you are not in pain just enough to feel your muscle burning a little, there will be no progress. I KNOW this from Experience.

the omron pedometer ad keeps obscuring the links to the exercise demos--make it stop!!! i love my omron pedometer but i don't appreciate the ad preventing my access to the other parts of this site!

pelvic lifts lying on your back with kness bent saved my lower back.

So often we treat the symptom and not the cause for discomfort. Thanks so much, Joe, for the information.

i have not exercised in I don't iknow how long. I just joined the 10 minute workout team. I have no clue where to begin, this article not only gave me a starting place (to strengthen areas I have not used), but also educated me in the importance of proper strengthening techniques
