Honestly, there was no way this would not get a 5 star review from me, considering how much Foundation Training has helped me with my chronic back and hip problems It s genuinely not an overstatement that Dr Goodman s methods have quite drastically increased my quality of life.When suffering from back pain or hip problems, I now have a quite extensive toolkit to deal with it And this book not only provides an interesting exercise I have not come across in the DVDs the leg trace , but also devotes quite a bit of time to incorporating the new movement patterns into your everyday life, which I was forced to admit I don t quite do enough yet.At times, the author could have written at a somewhat accessible level, being very fond of the precision of Latinate names of muscles and parts of the skeleton, to a degree I feel it might hinder people who are not comfortable with the terminology And I firmly believe that this book should be read by as many people as possible, and its lessons implemented.Also, there is a whimsical story about a woman s day that incorporates Foundation Training, but I d be lying if I didn t say the rhyme and meter are a bit wonky at times But I suppose I ll have to take the good with the bad, and there is just so much good in this method. Training works It helped me with the spine pain 5 stars for that.That book is a pain 0 or even 3 stars for that It s heavy physically kg and with content Too many parts are written as if to sound smart barely understandable, with micro added value Maybe it s because I m not a native speaker Maybe it s as others reviewers mentioned the scientific jargon.The scientific jargon here is mainly a blah blah Not necessary for understanding improvement It s a waste of time For a better health, it s much better to go on another Foundation training than reading that book Nevertheless, you can skip the blah blah and focus on the friendly useful parts For example, focus on the parts you can apply P.S.Doing training based on YouTube video s that s on your own risk Trainer corrected me and the entire group Trainer shared the latest info in the area Not yet published in the books videos Training had a better ROI Return On Invested time. This was an interesting overview of the Foundation Training method I liked that there was a definition of the program to begin with and then the book went right into how to incorporate the exercises into your life There was a full color picture of each exercise and a description of how to do it There was even a section that showed various exercises you could do while doing everyday things like brushing your teeth or laundry I will still sign up for at least 30 days of the program online to get videos to help me learn the motions, but at least I know what I m getting myself into I feel like these exercises will help me with the back strains and pains I ve been having Likely 20 years at a desk has taken it s toll and now I need to strengthen some smaller muscle groups. Borrowed from community library and didn t have time to finish before it was due to be returned Lots of Hold requests for it so limited borrowing period Did glean a few important points though and try to remember to put them into practiceOthers who have read the entire book and write better reviews will explain better I think it basically comes down to us using wrong muscles and positioning when we re moving or sitting We re to make use of the hip joints to bend and stabilize ourselves instead of bending at the waist or sitting with poor body positioning for any length of time.Will borrow again when I have time to read it in the limited borrowing period.
