View Full Version : Be Breathed and Warrior Wellness
I just recieved the tapes and went over them.
several questions, after two Warrior Wellness workouts...
how many a week?(reminder - I have a lower back problem strain in L1/T12 and L4/L5 area plus rom limitation in my hips)
- how many Be Breathed a week? when?
- in the Warrior Wellness, can i do the spine and knee exercise before the others? since I do them on the morning, while I do the upper body stuff my back gets realy stiff and aching on me...
- and, the outer side of my knee hurts when doing hip circles should I not do them?

You may do WW every day as long as you don't experience pain. If you're experiencing pain, you're using the wrong protocol. Move slowly and smoothly. There should be no pain. Tightness, perhaps, but not pain.
Be Breathed, I can't advise since you have a lower back injury. Check with your doctor/PT on the specific movements and get his approval and guidance.
Describe what you are doing with the hip circles and which knee hurts where and when.
regarding the be breathed - when I do the standing breathing it realy makes my back feels much better, also when seated.
I also find out that immediatley when I wake up I need to work my back otherwise everything else (including shoulder, knee or any standing work) is painfull.
regarding my doctor, he is incomepetent as I'm 4 month injured and my situation is detoriorating and don't have a prognosis, I bought a lower back book by stuart mcgill and considering other doctors. I understand you don't won't to be liable so I won't persist, what your be breathed recommendations for uninjured beginners?
regarding hip circles, when I move out to the right and front, the outside of left knee (LCL/IT) hurts. also, I bought all 3 Warrior Wellness™ tapes, just doing the beginner but I could use more spine moves, are there any such moves recomended in the other tapes? just do more volume? stick with whats there?
appreciate your help ALOT.

Uninjured beginners often work up to 50-100 repetitions of Spinal Rocks, smoothly and slowly, every day.
When doing your hip circles, stand on the ball of your left foot. Do you still experience the pain?
Several hundred hip circles (throughout the day) plus 80-100 Spinal Rocks every day rehabilitated my lower back in one week after an injury.
Thank you very much coach
what are spinal rocks? are they on the Warrior Wellness tapes?

Spinal Rocks are the Biomechanical Exercise demonstrated in Be Breathed.
