darouwellnessCalling all men and women across the globe! Whether you are an avid fitness enthusiast, a victim of low back pain / pelvic dysfunction, or a new mom in post-partum recovery, you are likely spending a fair bit of time thinking about your core. Many of us have been told that we have a weak core, that we need to improve our core stability, or that our core muscles have poor/flabby tone.
So, many of us will consult with Nurse YouTube or Doctor Google to find the best exercises that solve our core issues. Unsurprisingly, a plethora of different exercises targeting the six-pack abdominal muscles will pop-up with promises of a flatter, sexier, healthier tummy, which is awesome, right? Who wouldn’t sign-up for those?
Truth is, many of those exercises can actually work against us. There’s one in particular that has been the source of much debate and misinformation: the abdominal crunch. After dozens of studies, experts have found that abdominal crunches or sit-ups can actually oppose the core benefits we are trying to achieve.
In today’s blog post, learn why crunches don’t work, and what you CAN do! Click the link in our bio to read more!
