The premise of this article is absolutely correct. However, if you are completely out of shape and your joints are already feeling the pressure, these exercises are too difficult to start on immediately. These would be good if there were some good stretching exercises to start with for at least 2 weeks (or longer), followed by basic strengthening exercises, then upgrading to these exercises. If you have allowed your body to lose tone and muscle strength and you are having pain in the joint areas, you need to start slowly allowing your muscles to take stress off of the joints. Having said this, it is amazing how fast your body will start to respond. It is necessary to take it to the next level as soon as possible to really start to feel the benefits. Thank you for a great article. You have reminded me that I have to get started again.
