comment Would short Achilles tendons keep you from touching your toes?
@JohnP, yes I now tend to think in terms of the full fascial network mobility and the concept of tensegrity.

comment Would short Achilles tendons keep you from touching your toes?
@JohnP, I was thinking in terms of Tom Myers' Anatomy Trains, where limitation of any of the superficial back line (plantar fascia, achilles, hams, erector spinae) can limit forward flexion.

Cardio is only one part in getting in shape for skiing. Are you also going to work on flexibility, hip/leg and trunk muscle strength?

comment Strenghtening internal neck muscles associated with head going back?
I agree with rrirower about getting professional guidance. Your question is asking about rehab rather than fitness. With a concussion and a neck injury, you may aggravate your symptoms without proper instruction.

comment Lower back pain at night only
You are welcome. Once you get an ok from your doctor, this answer has links to ab/core exercises that should help strengthen (without aggravating the back) like the bird dog, dying bug and planks.

comment Lower back pain at night only
Ask your doctor to diagnose the cause of your pain. Night pain can be a red flag, so it is best to ask a medical professional before trying the do-it-yourself route.

comment Fat gain/shape after liposuction
This site on liposuction says that the body can create new fat cells where the lipo removed fat cells with an increase of more than 10% of body weight. The site's faq should answer all your questions about lipo.

comment Fat gain/shape after liposuction
This is more of a cosmetic rather than a fitness related question. Liposuction is a procedure to reduce local areas of fat for appearance sake. They use compression garments afterwards to compress the skin to your new shape. If you gain weight after liposuction, the fat cells that were not removed can still increase in size.
