I’m a 44 year old male weighing 280 lbs. I desperately need to get healthy and strong and am motivated. However anytime I do the least bit of any exercise, whether it’s walking, jogging, other forms of cardio or weight lifting, etc., my lower back muscles fatigue extremely fast and ache causing me to stop and rest them, limiting my exercise. It’s very frustrating as I can’t get into a rhythm and I feel like I’m not getting the max potential from my workout.
- Is there any particular reason for this?
- Is this common for over-weight and out of shape people?
- Are there specific exercises I should do to remedy this?
- Are there specific exercises I should not do until this is no longer an issue?
