What are the best exercises for correcting scoliosis and kyphosis back problems? Since its the new year i would like to start working out again. I'm about 330lbs I ride a bike about 5-7 miles a day but its not helping me lose weight at all. Please help a noob should i get a personal trainer? I got about 6 months of free time and will have access to a state of the art gym so i want to try to get a head start now. Thanks

>>94591 Also forgot to say I'm about 6'5 if it helps and what would be a good website to help plan meals? I know that eating is half the battle that is another issue.

How good is your maths? You could just calorie count. You'll probably find a few certain snacks or drinks that you're taking for granted are stopping you losing weight. Or you're just under estimating portions. It won't be hard to lose weight at your current mass. Also avoid empty carbs, fill up with green veg rather than potatoes and bread.

You could log what you eat for a week or what you ate over the last few weeks (not including christmas) and I bet we'd be able to give you pointers. Or you can just start from scratch. Make sure you get a few different vegetables for the fibre and micronutrients, one or two fruit and a reasonable amount of protein. If you're training for strength while running a deficit people will give you all sorts of numbers but bear in mind 50g is the normal amount for someone who is just maintaining weight and not working on strength. You'll probably want much more.

As far as bad backs goes I don't know. Ask Usain Bolt. Okay so that's probably not an option but whoever helped him cope with his scoliosis obviously did a good job.
