    Hi, I am 31 and and I have got a prolapsed disk at L4-L5. This has led me to restrict my movements so as not to further strain my back. I am a working lady and I got married last year. After my back-injury, I have put on around 8 kgs. I am now 55 kg and 155 cm. I seriously want to lose my extra kilos and get my original figure back. But I am not sure about which exercises to pick as I am already got a strained back. I suffer from this back pain quite often. Kindly suggest how to burn my fats.
