Hey everyone and anyone who can answer this, I have started the regime and everything is going well, all bar one thing, whilst my fitness is going up and my waistline is going down, my left hip and lower back still bother me when any sort of stress is put on them, my hip sometimes feels like it will explode with pain if I push it too far, which isn't very far at all, and my back is ok for the most part. I want to make a recovery without doc's help, are there any exercises which will strengthen it and improve motion or am I destined to a lifetime of hip-pain (btw, I'm only 22 and i think it's the result of being overweight for too long, but many badly educated attempts at getting fitter through dangerously intensive exercise.) Cheers.
