Have you ever wondered why your trainer may not include sit-ups or crunches in your workout program? The answer is the movement required for these exercises – continually curling the lumbar spine – adds pressure to the discs and can actually lead to tears and back pain. There are several core exercises you can do that, done properly, won’t cause unnecessary strains on your back. Some great examples of core exercises you can do include: deadbugs, Pallof presses, variations of the plank, etc.

Talk to your trainer for more information.
