Ginger Daniels Movement Specialist
I work with many female clients over the years that have different issues connecting to their abdominal muscles because of various reasons... One has had fibroid removal surgery and has built up scar tissue, one had a baby that was too large for her body and resulted in an abdominal split, and one had cysts removed from her uterus. Whatever the issue, it is important to find the way that is right for YOU to feel your abs. The best way is to first hire me to help you :) seriously you should, I have a knack for this, but if you are not able to have a personal trainer, here is a tip that MIGHT help you though not everyone can do an abdominal crunch. IF the back aches during your crunch, put your feet in the air in table top with knees bent over your hips, ankles in line with knees, feet together.
Many people, men included, do not know the proper execution of an abdominal crunch and since this is the standard "ab" workout for most and the best old school way to create definition in that abdominal wall, I am re posting an old video my good friend, Octavia shot last year...See below. Keep in mind, we had some audio issues, so listen carefully. :)
If you are not able to do a crunch because of neck issues, table top those legs and put your arms flat on the floor. As you inhale let your legs go away from you without arching your back, as you exhale draw the legs toward you, pulling your naval to the ground.
NUTRITION TIP OF THE WEEK
EAT A PEACH
Peaches are great for you! Eating a stone fruit like a peach is healthy because it low in calories, has no fat and is full of minerals that your body needs such as potassium, magnesium and iron. Peaches are a great source of fiber, help belly bloat go down and they give you energy. Try having a peach for dessert tonight. If you get one from your local farmers market it will actually taste the way it should as well. :)
Having a strong core is vital to maintaining a healthy, moving body. Your core is the center of your being, your powerhouse of movement, and its strength creates a better alignment of your bones. Your abdominal muscles are a major part of this...keep them strong so that you look and feel your best you.
