Is back pain normal?
I'm 16 and I'm trying to stay fit but everytime I do workout involving lying on the mat and get back up (sit up, etc.) I feel my spine is hurting me. When I do torso twist, my bone will produce a cracking sound. When I walk my ankle will sound the same. This sound is so loud tgat people surround me could easily hear it. I ask my mom and she says it's because I was born with large sculpture and too thin for it. She says I'm only bone and muscle but I really hope that's not the reason because I want to fix this. If its gene, nothing I could do about it. Please help me I really love working out...
I'm sorry it's too long.
it depends.on what kind of workout you did and if you rest (how long you rest after the workout)
When you do sit ups, keep your back flat on the floor, engage your abs and execute a short, concentrated movement to raise just your shoulder blades off the floor. This should put less strain on your lower back. Good form is essential for almost all exercises and it would be worth you getting a trainer to show you what you should be doing. Yoga will also help you deal with bad posture and other habits that are causing you muscular/skeletal pain.
Sounds to me more as a movement problem. If you are bones and muscle i woudnt even bother doing sit ups if i were you. Go and do some lifting to fill up your frame
First consult ur doctor to see if there is any injury which might be bothering u.once u get a green signal u r ready to go.the doctor might advice u some exercises to strengthen it back muscles.
Do a couple of google searches: situps back pain, situps alternatives, core exercise back pain, core exercise back injury/back pain
I've read a bunch of blogs that say back injury is common with the wrong core exercises. Some people can do it, many shouldn't and do anyway, some people get serious damage... anyway there are core exercises you can do and avoid that pain, and I think that would be best. (not trying to push through it...core is very important but there are plenty of alternatives to still strengthen the core and back injury ain't nothin to eff with)
