Soccer Moms & Situps

posted Sep 11, 2013, 4:02 PM by Er Fitness

Why is it "soccer moms" still do 100 sit-ups a day and think the abs of their dreams are right around the corner?  If you want slim, sculptured, bikini abs, STOP!  Countless sit ups will thicken your abdominal muscles and open the door to lower back injury.  According to Dr. Stuart McGill, “There are only so many bends or a ‘fatigue life’,” in your spinal disks.”  Don't use them up with crunches!

Knots in the Muscle

Lots of training produces knots in the muscle tissue.  Stretching is like tying a knot in a string and pulling on both ends.  I think you get the picture.  So what's the answer?  It may be as simple as a small cylinder shaped piece of foam called a foam roller.  That direct pressure will relieve muscle tension and you'll be hooked for life.
