I'm just wondering if there's a way to work out your lower abs when you have a metal rod in your back? If there isn't, then yeah I expected that answer, but if there is a way, suggestions?
Depends on how mobile your back is to be honest. Hanging Leg/knee raises would be better than situps/crunches.
If not, the old adage that a strong presser has strong abs.
well the back isn't very mobile from the waist down - to the point where picking things up from the ground requires time and squatting
hmm ... so gym work is still doable. It's a problem because a gut's beginning to form.
I'm unfamiliar with whatever gym equipment so ..
I know, but the only reason why the gut is there is because of the rod in the back making that area basically immobile and not getting the workout the rest of the body has.
so why's the rest of the body lean then?
