I read somewhere that Americans have become unhealthier statistically because of the recession. WTF??

You don't need money to exercise! I'm going to try and show that you can get in to shape without spending money - use your environment creatively and you can succeed in attaining better health. My dad is a retired coach and P.E. teacher, and much to his chagrin I've been a lazy ass my whole life. Maybe I can finally put his knowledge to good use, as well as shape up and make him proud!

If you have a creative idea to share be sure to let me know ! I'll post the best photos/videos/links here.

Back Pain

I have scoliosis and as a kid my doctor told me I had a lifetime of back pain to look forward too.  He was right.  My issue is sitting - I had a doctor tell me to 'avoid sitting' - this still amuses me, as I am a computer guy.  I'll try stand-up comedy as my next career.  Anyway this summer I spent way too much time in cars on long road trips, and its killed my back.  My ham strings tighten when I sit for long periods, and with one leg shorter than the other, puts a strain that results in back pain.  So I need to get back in to my Yoga routine, and follow these tips as well.  Its just hard to get motivated about exercise when your back hurts.  Its a catch 22.
