    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Cardio can get you too!

    To those who think back injuries can only happen on the weight lifting floor of your local fitness center...think again! I strained my lower back pretty badly (back brace and no activity for a month) and did it due to poor posture on the stairmaster. Definitely keep proper form and posture on your mind as your exercise. I thought that things were safe since I wasn't lifting heavy weights but soon found out otherwise!

    Back injuries can happen anywhere at anytime.

    It's always wise to have a trainer show you the proper ways to work out when at gyms.
