Publisher Comments:

A renowned orthopedic surgeon provides the first medically proven fitness program designed to help prevent the #1 reason for doctor visits in the United States--bone and joint problems

Fitness can't be just about a healthy heart or looking good in a swimsuit. After all, low cholesterol and a flat stomach won't get you very far if back or neck problems, or a worn out knee or shoulder, keep tripping you up.

This first-of-its-kind program is designed to ensure that your frame can go the distance, with durability to match the muscle tone and conditioning we all want. And unlike other workouts, Framework starts with a unique self-test that uncovers potential problems with your frame, your workout, your nutrition, and more. It even combines diet and lifestyle advice with a balanced, customizable workout that acknowledges the fact that our bodies are all a little different and often need special attention. It teaches you to pay attention to what your body tries to tell you, and when it is being challenged by a special problem, whether it is a heel spur or stress on the job.

Best of all, Nicholas A. DiNubile, M.D., who serves as orthopedic consultant for the Philadelphia 76ers as well as the Pennsylvania Ballet, shows you how to work around--helping without hurting--any muscle or joint problems you may already have. And it all takes only 1 hour a day, 3 days a week.

Synopsis:

A renowned orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Nicholas DiNubile, provides the first medically proven fitness program designed to help prevent the #1 reason for doctor visits in the United States — bone and joint problems. Named one of the "Best Doctors in America," Dr. DiNubile presents a complete workout customized to individual frames giving you the durability to match the muscle tone and conditioning we all want.

Re-Model Your Frame, October 30, 2007

'Framework' is a fitness program for your bones and joints and offers a complete workout combined with diet and lifestyle advice. It is divided up into three parts. Part one discusses why you need framework. Part two is the program and its components include cardio, core strengthening and flexibility, upper and lower body stretching and strengthening exercises, resting and recovering, diet, and decreasing stress. And finally, part three discusses various treatment options for when your frame fails (injuries). This is not a terribly detailed section, but rather offers the reader a general overview. All-in-all I felt it to be a worthwhile resource for anyone looking to give their aged or worn frame a tune-up. Also recommend "Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff" for more detailed info on rotator cuff tears and fixing many shoulder problems.
