Computer Butt Syndrome isn’t the only thing you get
from sitting on your rumpus staring at the Internet all
day. There’s something else you MUST be aware of, too.
Look at the following email and you’ll see what I
mean – and how to fix it.
I’m a 21-year-old male in Toronto,Canada. I want to
thank you for your “Combat Conditioning” book.
About a month ago I found myself having “Computer Butt
With a sense of vengence, I took out the book, read it over
and started doing 6 exercises including the three “Royal Court”
In the past I always had some lightheaded feeling after doing the
back-bridging. I thought the exercise was not for me but somehow
I believed that it would be better if I keep doing it. And today I
noticed the lightheaded feeling is gone. I felt more energized after
doing back-bridging without being fatigued or dizzy. I also noticed
that the duration increased up to 1 min. When I started out I only
could do it for 20 seconds.
I have a simple question for you, I went to a Chinese doctor and she
told me the base of my spine is out of its place slightly and also told
me it’s common among people who sit in front of a computer. I asked
her opinion about the back-bridging and hand-standing exercises. She
told me that those would be very good exercises for fixing my back
problem. Do you have any suggesion to maximize the results?
Lastly I want to thank you for helping me to feel better.
M.F. First, glad you’re exposing the truth that Computer Butt
Syndrome is BOTH a male and female challenge. Even for a
youngin of 21. Second, I’m glad you stuck with the bridging.
The light-headed feeling is due to you FINALLY getting some
blood to your noggin. Much needed, I might add. Not just for
you – but for ME – and everyone else.
The only advice I have in addition to what the Chinese doctor
told you is, in the words of Emerson, “Do the thing and you
will have the power.” Stop thinking about it. Stop looking for
advice on every little thing that you could figure out yourself
if you’d simply DO.
One final comment: In my library I have dozens of Chinese
fitness books – and a large percentage of them show bridging
as the key to eliminating neck and back pain and strengthening
the whole body. So it comes as no surprise that your Chinese
doctor was right on this one. And the good news is that a good
percentage of M.D.s, chiropractors, and other health pros are
touting the positive effects of bridging, too. So I think you’re
in good hands, Hans.
Well, that’s all for now.
