    Default Question on Super Joints routine

    Here is a little background first.

    I have been doing martial arts for almost 20 years. I have done a good job maintaining most of the areas that martial artist have problems with (i.e. shoulders, elbows and knees). However, my back is a constant struggle (I was hit by a car when I was 12 and that still gives me problems on the right side of my lower back).

    I have been doing Super Joints for about a week and my shoulders and knees feel really good. But my back is very tender right now.

    My question is, is there a "it gets better before it gets worse" effect with the spine mobility exercises in Super Joints?

    Thanks

    How does the belly dance exercise feel? I really like this one for lower back / hip mobility. Make sure you are breathing and consciously relaxing while performing it (if it does not hurt your back of course).

    I have the Super Joints book, not the DVD. So from what I can tell this is a more focused variation of the Hula Hoop. It all feels okay while I am doing, I do feel a little tension in my back, but later in the day the pain intensifies.

    Default Question on Super Joints routine

    I think I recently pinched a nerve in my back and have found these spine mobility drills can bring out the pain.

    Looking back I can also recall some initial discomfort with the exercises, at least partially because I was forcing my body to go through the whole of what I thought was the total range of motion for the movement. Then I read in the beginning about starting conservatively and slowly increasing the amplitude/range as you get better.

    For the hula-hoop I found best to so like Pavel says (as usual); make the foward, side, back, other side tilts, going as far as I could without straining, and moving slowly at first trying to blend them into one smooth movement.
