A friend of mine wanted to start exercising again. She used to be a meter reader so was in "good enough" shape. (I disagree but whatever) but I'm not sure what someone with seroius sculiosis can even do? I mean she's 5'6" and would be 5'8.5" if she didn't have it. She got what she felt was heavy (I didn't see it I can't comment) and decided to never get that way again so lost weight over the last 18 months and is down to 135 which is friggin skinny. She starts grad school in 10 days and seriously asked me for advice to workout. I've tried to get her to swim (figure it would help the back) thats out. She'll do anything else logical though. Its like everything I know to have her do, she can't do. any advice would be appreciated. She can bend over annd pick stuff up, but if its heavy her back hurts for days after.
