The Road Behind

Story Sent in by Tess:

Jason contacted me over Match and we chatted for a few days before he asked me out. I arrived at the cafe first and when he showed up he sat across from me, folded his hands, said, "Let's end this," and stared at me without another word.

I replied, "Um... what are you talking about?"

He then passed a sealed envelope to me and stood up. "This is for the road ahead. I wish you good fortune."

Then he left. I opened the envelope. Inside it was a piece of paper cut in the shape of a... sword? At least that's what it looked like. As it turned out, I never wound up needing it for the road ahead.

What the above statistic tell us is: The large percentage of people with low back pain in the United States shows that there are few people who have properly developed the deep stabilization muscles required for core stabilization.
