"What can I do with a medicine ball?" "That exercise requires too much coordination." "I have back pain, I could never do that exercise." Why do we do the 360 degree medicine ball exercise as part of our warm ups? Your spine has many small joints that run the length of your back from the base of your skull to the top of your pelvis. These joints are connected by a complex set of muscles, tendons and ligaments that form your "core." This exercise teaches all these muscles to work together to stabilize your spine as your body moves through horizontal space. It also applies lateral forces to your ankles, knees and hips while forcing the body to wake up dozens of muscles from their office induced slumber. Twisting is one of our basic human movements. This exercise is both a twisting motion and an exercise to actively resist twisting and torquing of your spine. Master it and watch your back and other joint pains gradually go away.

This article's tagline says "The problem isn't willpower. It's neuroscience. You can't - and shouldn't - fight back."
This is an article that wants to make you think that science says you can't lose weight and keep it off. The author is a neuroscientist so we automatically assume that she would know what she is talking about. I find it unfortunate that so many scientists allow their eduction and experience to impact their ability to learn what they need to know to become successful in areas outside their given discipline. And it is extremely unfortunate that so many of these articles are being published to let YOU off the hook when it comes to your weight and health. Science does not say you can't lose weight and keep it off. People with degrees in scientific areas are telling you these things. People can be and often are flawed in their understanding of science.
When I was obese 10 years ago, I had already received my degree in Engineering Science from the University of Virginia years earlier. Yeah that's right I'm a scientist too. But my knowledge and interpretation of science didn't keep me from becoming obese. It was my ignorance of science that caused me to become obese. I haven't been obese for more than 7 years now. I didn't get a degree in neuroscience to solve my obesity problem. In fact I'm becoming more and more convinced that if I had gotten an advanced degree in an area like this author, I wouldn't have had the ability to solve my obesity problem at all.
I would have most likely assumed I understood what was going on and come to the same conclusion as this author did after regaining her 30 lbs she initially lost. The author concluded her article with "I finally gave up dieting six years ago, and I’m much happier. I redirected the energy I used to spend on dieting to establishing daily habits of exercise and meditation. I also enjoy food more while worrying about it less, now that it no longer comes with a side order of shame."
And there it is: the author wants you to be ok with being overweight or obese. She wants you to exercise as a daily habit but enjoy your food without shame. Worse the article left me believing that if I tried to lose weight, it would actually make me more likely to gain weight in the future so I should just do something like be mindful of my eating. I don't know about you, but my body and mind were telling me to eat all the time when I was obese. If I continued listening to my hunger and full signals, I would be morbidly obese or dead by now.
So yeah living in shame sucks. No we don't want that for you at all. But the answer isn't to accept your situation as a scientific fact and adjust your attitude toward being positive about being obese. What you need to do is find the right mix of working out, eating habits and accountability that will allow you to lose the weight and keep it off forever. You can spend a couple years experimenting by yourself which can be extremely illuminating or you can work with a body transformation expert that can lead you through the whole process from start to finish. While the process is simple, it isn't easy. It requires us to make changes to our lifestyle and that is difficult. If it wasn't, everyone would look like movie stars or their previous 25 year old self.
It's human nature to find the easiest path. We want to be told it's not our fault. We want to believe there isn't much we can do to impact the results we live with daily. We want to believe our genetics are responsible or that the deep seated physical part of our brain just won't let us get slim and stay that way. Or that science says we can't do it. Please do not let these articles keep you from reaching a level of fitness you haven't had in years or decades. I assure you there is a path that works very well that doesn't force you to count calories now or ever.
I want you to imagine that you have lost 30 lbs like the author did, but instead of putting it back on like the author of this article says she did, you are writing an article 10 years from now like I am in the hopes that you will impact a few people that desperately need to hear what you have to say at that exact moment.
You can lose 30 lbs and keep it off. You can. You absolutely can.

This is an interesting article. To me it represents a perspective that is flawed from the outset but still gives us quite a bit of information. At the end of the day, it's not about calories in and out, it's about making the lifestyle changes necessary to liberate you from the clutches of obesity. I've lived in good health and fitness for more than 7 years in a row now without counting a single calorie. However I have made major changes to the types of foods that I eat and the types of exercise that I do. I didn't lose my weight and kick obesity by living on a few calories a day and exercising 3 to 8 hours a day. It's simply not necessary. But I can tell you that if I go back to eating and exercising like I used to, I would put all my lost weight back on within two to three years. And that's why I think all of these people have put so much of their weight back on: they didn't make the lifestyle changes necessary to live a healthy life. And I have a huge fear: I fear that hundreds of thousands of people will read this article and say to themselves, I'm doomed. NO YOU ARE NOT DOOMED. There is a way to lose the weight and keep it off. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/02/health/biggest-loser-weight-loss.html?smid=fb-share&_r=1

"My posture is terrible." "How do I workout the back of my shoulders?" "I get this awful neck pain at the end of the workday." We have a couple of exercises that are specifically targeted to undo some of the damage a day at the computer and holding our cell phones does to our upper back, shoulders and neck. We do this exercise every time we warm up because it is really good at resetting the position of your shoulders and their surrounding muscles. This is the face pull. Add it to your warm ups and see what it does for your posture:

"My core is so weak." "What's a good way to strengthen my abdominals?" "I've never been able to do that exercise." The leg ups and the easier exercise called the knee ups are very helpful exercises to strengthen and warm up your hip flexors which are chronically shortened and weakened by our professional jobs that have us sitting all day. We use this exercise as part of our warm ups to turn on all the muscles supporting the lower spine and flexing the hip.
