Wow, i totally vary from what most people are saying. I was introduced to foam rolling via a personal trainer and then through a book.

I do yoga and lift. I stretch/ warm-up before lifting (similar to what is presented in NROLFW). I only foam roll on lifting days and then for only a few (2-4) minutes. This was what my trainer did and what I read to do in the book.I definitely feel a difference in the soreness on days I skip due to circumstance.

Most of what I know I learned from this book.. I’ve also done the NROLFW and looked at Starting Strength and Ice Cream Fitness. But the book above was the most approachable. I now have organized my own program. (I have a two day split. I can give you details if you really want to know.)

But….. For back pain, the best thing I did was add walks. Trying to get rid of the pain i lost nearly 38 pounds, did yoga everyday, physical therapy, switched to a standing desk, started lifting and NOTHING helped as much as the 30 minute walk I added to my routine in January. My back pain is due to a high hip (following a pregnancy) so YMMV but it’s a simpler fix than going to a gym.

There’s always the library. I read that book and The Female Body Breakthrough by Rachel Cosgrove at about the same time. I prefer the Cosgrove one, but they do contain a lot of similar information. Her dietary guidelines are really easy to follow.

Not at all. One legged deadlifts are really hard. They require you to use more of the little stabilizing muscles than a standard deadlift, that’s why I said bodyweight. Anything that shifts your balance – like moving your hip around – will stop you from being able to do it. Your body should self correct by stopping the extra movement.

I first started doing them after reading The Female Body Breakthrough – I was surprised at how hard they were. I can deadlift my bodyweight, but I still have a lot of trouble with a bodyweight one legged deadlift.

Of course you would stop and catch yourself before you fell over, I was only kidding about that part.
