I see, do you know why you have that back pain? (I had back pain for years, I was woodworker a few years back and I didn't care much about my back at that time, well, recently after a 'bone scan' I realized I had a very light osteoporosis, nothing irreversible but still, I'm 26...).
I am training, but I am a beginner.
I run twice a week (not much, 3K for now and want to reach 5k for the end of this year).
And I train with "weight" exercises twice a week (simple stuff: chin up, push up, crunch & plank). When I'll get a little more muscular I will think about doing more of "bodybuilding-exercices", but that might be in a couple of years because I'm in bad shape.
I would also like to join a martial art in january in Brussels, but it will probably be something like aikido I think (I don't know so much what else to do, I'm not so much into "hitting" and violent contact).
What fighting training did you follow (and will you follow)?
Maybe you know it already, but there will be a vegan potluck in Antwerp city (18 dec, at 12.00). http://www.facebook.com/events/14429181 ... ent_invite
