hurt lower back with situps ??
Okay i'm a little confused i've had a really sore and slightly painful lower back since i worked out the other day. I was doing situps laying flat on the floor, with my knees bent and my feet under a desk. I ketp my arms folded across my chest and my hands holding my shoulders.
When i got to the last few sets the initial coming UP off the floor hurt until i was slightly bent and then the ab burn kicked in. the first part of the movement coming up off the floor seemed to strain my lower back right above my butt.
How can i have hurt my back doing situps ? LOL my abs aren't even sore after 5 sets of 12 (all i could take, i just started getting serious about the Abs)
Is proper form with your back slanted slightly or flat on the floor. I refuse to put my arms behind my head because i heard that was wrong form.
i've only been lifting weights since february and i had no idea how great it could be. i think i'm addicted to it now LOL i feel like if i don't workout on the days i;m supposed to , something is missing. i love both the highs i get first the adrenaline one like the runners high and then after the workout that mellow, someone just slipped me a valium high LOL
