“I have a Hard Time Doing an Abdominal Workout because of my Neck Pain”
Posted Mar 23 2011 12:07pm
A lot of us do crunches or sit-ups to work our stomach, but the truth is there are a number of ways to get a good neck workout without doing typical crunches .
One is actually standing and doing knee raises. Another great one, which will especially hit the lower abs, is crunching the lower body without moving the upper back. This is the area most of us try to work on anyway. Some call this the muffin top area. It sounds a bit nasty, but it brings home the point of your belly hanging over the pants. Nobody wants this, and with the right exercises and advice, even neck pain sufferers can forget about avoiding their workout because of neck pain or stiffness.
Here’s how to do the last exercise I just talked a bit about. Lie flat on the floor with your arms at your side. Raise your legs up bringing your rear slightly off the floor, hold for a second or two, then relax and repeat. Notice how you can keep your upper back and neck immobile.
