So the truth is, I am not a big fan of taking pictures of myself working out and then publishing them, but I did it anyway. I did it because one of you, my dear followers, asked me to share the workout that I do on a daily basis to help with flexibility, strength and pain. I am not going to pretend I have a bikini-ready body, because I definitely do not. Merely, I want to share with all of you my workout routine and I hope it helps someone along the way.
As a side note, I am not a personal trainer, and I have no degree in fitness whatsoever, so please talk to your doctor or someone who knows your body well before you try my routine yourself.

Reblogged this on 4 Seasons Health – Blog and commented:
These look very good for anyone with scoliosis (or even those without).
Hi maam!! This workout looks really helpful. Can’t wait to try them. I’ve been suffering from a lot of back pain lately due to my scoliosis.
Working out ever day is the key. At times, it may seem impossible to move, but it will help you long-term! Let me know how it goes 🙂
Thank you – this is a useful resource!
Hi! Thanks for reblogging my post – it was such a lovely surprise!!
Eliana, I do most of these exercises, too. I love the narrow squat and kickback (I normally do a kickback with a regular squat). I haven’t tried the Sumo squat either; I’ll give it a try.
As jrlarner said above; These exercises are great regardless of one’s physical/medical status. It’s always a great feeling knowing I’m taking care of myself when investing time and effort in my health in this way.
Well done to you; The images and explanations are fabulous! 🙂
I feel so uncoordinated sometimes when I do the narrow squat and kickback, almost like I am going to fall over completely, but it really works the tushi. It’s so hard to stay motivated with working out, but it’s so incredibly important! Do you have other workouts you like to do?
Yes, you’re right; those kickbacks need great balance, and definitely work the tushi. I love to keep swapping and changing exercise routines to keep myself inspired; otherwise, as you say, it can get a little tedious. I’ve recently found this lovely girl’s videos on youtube when searching for new material for arm workouts (no weights required).
Oh, awesome, thank you so much for sharing. I LOVE videos. It makes it so much easier to do the workout 🙂
Caty and I enjoyed all the pictures.
She was inspired and did a plank for 1 minute. 😂 hehe.
My favorite one was the Sumo Squat
Great job sis.
Hehe! OMG, did you take a picture? The suomo squat is pretty amazing for my abs! It’s basically the only workout I do that really gets my belly burning 🙂
Excellent resource for anyone! Thank you.
Hi Elizabeth! I really appreciate the fact that you took the time to comment on my post. Please let me know if you try the workout 🙂
This is great! I won’t be able to do all of them due to other health issues, but there’s definitely a good selection I can try – my spine definitely needs the help! x
Anything you can do to help your spine, is a good thing. From what I’ve read and heard, you want to increase the circulation to make it less painful. Hope you manage to try some of them out 🙂
This might help me. I go for OMT sometimes (orthopedic massage therapy) for my back, and that doctor told me that I need to figure out how to strengthen my core. I used to have a VHS tape of stretches that I could still do with my back when I was in my teens, but obviously VCRs are not in use much anymore, lol.
Hello lovely lady. I started this work out very slowly and in the beginning I could only do each excerise 5 times, at most. I would find whatever pace works for you and then slowly increase it, you don’t want to loose motivation because you can’t do it; that happens to me a lot. Good luck and let me know if you test it out.
I tried it this weekend. I was able to do the whole thing. 😀 I think I will make this a part of my routine in 2017.
Also, I learned something interesting last weekend. I saw a piebald deer for the first time (they are rare) when I was driving. It was white with brown spots, almost like a cow print. I was curious & decided to do some Googling, and I saw that those deer can be genetically prone to scoliosis.
Hey Mama Muse, have you kept doing the routine? I do it almost every day, and trust me, it really does a lot for your Tusshie. I LOVE the fact that the deer can be born with scoliosis! I think I will do a post on all animals that can be born with scoliosis. I feel like if deer can have it, all animals must be able to have it?
It’s a certain genetic thing that causes the piebald deer to have it. It would be interesting to find out which other animals get it. Let me know when you do that post so that I don’t miss it. The piebald deer could be the mascot for scoliosis, lol. I am doing your routine a couple times a week. It is good. I like putting my legs up on the wall at the end, lol. My son thinks that one is funny & usually does that move beside of me.
I am doing research on animals with scoliosis and I have found that doctors in Japan have identified the gene that causes scoliosis in a certain kind of fish! I will continue digging and let you know what else I find, and of course, let you know once it’s published. The legs up on the wall is my favourite as well. I can stay there forever. It feel so nice to have the lower back parallel to the ground in that way. I usually have a cushion that I use underneath my curve as well. It helps alleviate any pushing pain on my spine.
Many thanks Eliana, for all the information that you gifts us in your interesting blog,
I’m going to do all these exercises with my, son God bless you
Happy to help in anyway that I can. Please keep me posted on his condition ❤️
