I'm ex forces and was injured out when I broke a bone in my back that left me unable to walk.
After 5 years (and counting) of said dull exercises I can not only walk but I've swam on a national level and run avidly.
Stay with the exercises they really will work even if they don't seem like the sort of exercise you want to do
