Yes ! The wrong type of abs exercise shortens the rectus abdominis muscle, plays havoc with your back and increases the risk of pelvic organ prolapse and/or urinary incontinence. It won’t give you a flat stomach either.
Find out how to work your abs the right way ! Protect your back and perineum using a range of exercises that tone your body shape with minimum effort and maximum fun !
Out with boring, repetitive abs workouts that wipe you out and cause lumbar strain.
In with ‘clever abs’ for everyday living: ‘subtle abs’ to do on the bus or train; ‘power-ful abs’ that take their cue from the martial arts; full-body abs that work the back and perineum in tandem; even ‘imagined abs’ for moments of invisible exercise.
This book begins with an overview of core concepts: purpose of the abs muscles; how they work; how to work them the right way (so they actually do you some good); how to check that you are working correctly. It then presents a graded exercise program (basic, more advanced, athletic) and concludes by looking at ‘special cases’ (exercises for pregnancy, menopause and post-operative care).
