8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back

Glidewalking to tighten and tone your tush, and eliminate chronic back pain

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Ester Gokhale suffered from back pain for years. After back surgery didn't fix the problem, she decided to find the cure to her pain, and also stumbled across the cause. After studying the movements of people in many different countries, Gokhale found that most people have poor walking technique, which under-uses certain muscles and over-uses certain joints, causing injury and degeneration over time. In 8 Steps, Gokhale explains that "glidewalking" is the answer, not only to protecting your back, but to getting a tight and firm butt. Walking with the controlled, forward propulsion of glidewalking targets the butt and leg muscles while sparing the joints, and holds the pelvis in proper alignment, improving posture and easing pain.

PRO
  • ease back pain
  • tighten and tone glutes
  • improve posture
  • stop bone degeneration
CON
  • Not a diet, fitness or weight loss program
  • More effective methods of toning and tightening glutes
  • Only for those who suffer from back pain
  • Shouldn't take the place of a doctor's advice
DIET and NUTRITION

This book offers no diet or nutrition advice or program.

EXERCISE

Aside from offering changes to the way you walk, there is no exercise advice or program included in the book.

CONCLUSION

If you suffer from chronic back pain, glidewalking may be a way to ease or eliminate your pain, but if you are only looking to shape and tone your glutes, you may want to turn to traditional diet and exercise methods to achieve your best results.

It may not be a diet book, per se, but it sure is a great book on walking, sitting, and everthing else regarding posture. I was having back pain using the instructions in a popular walking book (based mostly on conventional wisdom), but this book completely changed my walking technique for the better. I now can average four miles and more w/o issues of feet, joints, or back.
