For the soreness, you don't know how to breathe during exercise and a warm up or cool down that significantly reduces soreness, also helps in lung expansion to impress your doctor. Arms out to the side, while doing a toe rise, lift your arms (angel wing style) up over your head, inhaling on the way up, hold for 15-30 seconds, exhale on the way down (reverse of what you just did). I found I have 1/3 the soreness due to anaerobic reactions when I do this. (I hate his idea of diet, but part of Dr. Stillman's 15 minutes in his 14 day shape up program). And for some of us with the resistance/strength training, the Hail Marys are necessary just to get us through it :) ! But to hear your praise (altho a stubborn lil cuss about what's good for you) is motivating and wonderful. Great article.
