I need some advice. Growing pains and things.

As I was growing up I was loved very deeply and very much, I was very lucky to have the family I have. But nothing is perfect. I wasn't given everything I wanted, I wasn't spoiled in that regard. However, all of my shortcomings, all my failings, excuses were made for. When I was challenged, I would quit rather than rise to it. Somewhere very far back, I never had the impression that I had to rise to challenges, rather I had to bend to the will of some sort of fate. And when things didn't turn…See More

Exercise for bad disk

Hi, there,I have what I believe is a stressed disk in my lower back. It is aggravated by lifting up straight in front. Carrying boxes, picking up things from the floor, and similar motions are anywhere from challenging to impossible when it is acting up. Anybody have suggestions for a workout regimen to strengthen my core without stressing my spine? Burpees, for example, seem to make things worse. I think a stronger core would take some of the load from my spine and keep the pain to a…See More
