Hey Artem, I live in Australia in a city called Adelaide.
Exercise has been difficult for me, due to several operations in my past. (including removal of pituitary). However, I took the plunge in January and February 2010 and lost 15 kilos just by walking. I am now 67kg
Unfortunately, I also saw a personal trainer in 2010 and hurt my lower back. I do not think he was properly qualified. This injury took a couple of months to heal and was very painful, for I tore the lower back muscle. Also, I had two operations on my shoulders last year, one on each shoulder, for I had developed bursitis in the shoulder muscles from working too long in retail. Bursitis inhibited me from lifting weights or anything above a kilogram. The operations helped my condition, yet I still have shoulder weakness.
Anyway, I saw another trainer during February who was QUALIFIED. Amazingly, and with carfeful supervision, I was able to lift some light weights, do some lateral pull-downs and even some bench pressings. However, by March last year, even the new trainer hurt my lower back muscle AGAIN ;-(. These injuries have made me quite weak and now I have consistent and alternating pain in the lower left and right back.
Artem, YOUR videos do inspire me. Although in pain, life is too short not to enjoy the outdoors. I am triying to go for long hour walks again. I DO wish to return to the gym, for my trainer is sure he can help me do weight training by targeting ONLY the muscles I wish to exercise and not the lower back.
Currently I am studying a Bachelor of Management (Management of Information Sysems) at UniSA. I already have a Diploma in Business, attained at 19 years of age, before I spent time working in retail. I have returned to study, for education is extremely important to me.
I have few friends, but I am a friendly person. I enjoy home cinema, DVDs, HDDVDs, Laserdiscs, Vinyls and a wide variety of movies. I also enjoy writing and learning about other cultures. Again, I love your videos, your determination and your attention to quality and detail! Keep it up!
