Q. What does the concept of fitness stands for?

A1Dagmar said it well.
A2Physical fitness is now defined as the body’s ability to function efficiently and effectively in work and leisure activities, to be healthy, to resist hypokinetic diseases, and to meet emergency situations.

Eventually, fitness depends on the requirments you pose to your body - if you only go fishing, it'd be a bit different than if you work in construction.

Q. Sometimes I can barely stand or sit. Is walking on treadmill something that can benefit?

Can someone post back strengthening exercises they have used for muscle fitness while trying to relieve muscle tightness. I suffered a back muscle problem a few months back and I haven't quite been able to heal properly. It seems to me that my back muscles tighten up a lot and even cramp up. Sometimes I feel like my lower back is going to split in half from the upper back. Sometimes I can barely stand or sit. Is walking on treadmill something that can benefit?
A1muscles need to be strong and long. if it won't happen- many problems can occur. this is why it's important to maintain in physical shape and do stretches. Yoga lessons can be very helpful for you- it's purpose is to help your muscles be long and strong. about the lower back, lay on your stomach while your head is out side of the bed and this will help you stretch your back muscles.
A2When your back acts up, does it make it painful for you to stand up straight and pull you into a sort of hunch to get relief? If so, try this trick: lie flat on the floor with your legs bent in a sitting position, and your legs in a chair. This means your knees at a 90 degree angle, just as if you were sitting in the chair. Doing this periodically for 15 - 20 minutes at a time relieves the pull on those muscles, giving them a chance to relax. Lying on your back in the floor with your knees bent a feet flat on the floor, like you’re going to do sit-ups, lift your pelvis as high as you can comfortable for ten repetitions once or twice a day. This is a great way to strengthen your back muscles. These are both things recommended by my doc and gave me relief.

Q. I absolutely hate hospitals and doctors offices and can't stand them. any advice?

I was very accident prone growing up so i have a lot of bad memories from the hospital and doctors offices that affect me today. Every time i get hurt or sick i refuse to go to get checked out and recently i did something to my wrist i was worried that i did something bad to it but i still wouldn't go. I'm better now but i need to get over my fears so i can handle these visits to the doctors or I'm worried something bad could happen in the future. Does anyone have any advice on what i should do?
Athis fear surly comes from places you know about. this is a first step! congratulations :).
now you have to figure what to do with them- that a very good situation to be in. all you have to do is choose how you want to overcome your fears. my advise to you is getting a psychologist that specialized in phobias. he can direct you to the next step much better then anyone else. you can also try Biofeedback, a treatment that helps you control your body reactions-

but i would let the psychologist recommend me a kind of therapy..
good luck!

Q. It’s actually a real source of irritation to me. I can't stand. Any such experiences….

The cesarean incision done on my body is really sensitive. I avoid touching it. I try to wear clothes that come up over my scar line, and I hate it when my son steps on the area when we're playing. It’s actually a real source of irritation to me. I can't stand. Any such experiences….
AI don't think I had sensitivity like you. As far as I can remember I was able to wear jeans once it healed. One thing that does set off the sensitivity for me is when my brother`s dog of the right height jumps on me and puts their claws over the area. I wish to know is that area sensitive or paining? Both make a lot of difference. Better consult with your physician.

Q. If I sit too long I get a pain in my tail bone area, when I stand it goes away...any idea?

I also get a pain just like it on the bottom of my left foot that goes away.
ACoccygodynia (pain of the tail bone) is not rare and can radiate from the lower back area. Usually it goes away on its own, however if the pain bothers you a lot you can apply anti-inflammation creams locally. If this pain is very disturbing for a while you should see a doctor to examine you once and check there is nothing else there that can cause the pain. Physical activity usually solves low back pain and might help in your case too.

Q. I gave birth a short while ago, and since then I just can't stand my husband. is that normal?

It's very strange, because we used to be such a great couple but since the baby came into our lives, I am tired all the time, and basicaaly every thing he does gets me so annoyed. Could it be the hormones? will we get back to how we used to? (This is a great site - I feel I can finally ask questions I was too ashamed to ask my family and friends :)
Ayou are tiered. it's normal. if you get more then 2 hours a night sleep you are lucky. when i'm tired i am annoyed. very natural. you can add the hormones- and you get couple of weeks of hell...my wife was unbearable after birth.

Q. is there like a recommended book that guide men through this period when we need to stand a long side our

woman ...
AI've found this:
http://www.amazon.com/Mayo-Clinic-Guide-Healthy-Pregnancy/dp/B0007XWN0K/ref=pd_sim_b_3

and also this, from a more sarcastic point of view of men about pregnancy:
http://www.amazon.com/Pregnancy-Sucks-Men-Miracle-Miserable/dp/159337156X

I haven't tried these books so I can't tell if they are good or informative. If you have any specific questions, you may consult your doctor.
