How do you work on your abs with a bum back??
I have several back problems and am on alot of restrictions, can't lift over 10 lbs, no repetitive bending, twisting motion of back hips or legs..so what the heck can i do to tone my stomach
Stability ball crunches are easy on the back & require more resistance than on floor. Also try working other body parts@ same time..i.e. chest presses & chest flyes on stability ball, alternating arm chest presses, & plank exercises. Make sure keep core tight w/EVERYTHING, especially plank; also superman's: lie on floor w/arms & legs straight out, lift chest & thighs off floor &hold for beat. Will strengthen lower back. B careful w/ cardio: usually people w/ back probs are advised to do recumbant bikes & low-impact..personally, I avoid treadmill bc impact on back & joints. For high-impact, make sure not on concrete /asphalt..rubber or padded carpeted floors usually more forgiving. If have access to lower back extension machine, feels great!!! Get better range of motion than floor superman, & can hang there to stretch out & align. Avoid vibration /shaking equipment!! If already bad back can make worse or slip disk!
St. Patrick's Day Ball I'll have to try this..but first guess I better get me some balls haha jk ..I have full membership to gym and they offer classes for people with fibromyalgia think I'm going to take one up..thought about aquatic class also but it's prolly all old women in bathing caps lol I refuse to be old
