    I really like the sit out exercise…its a DO anywhere exercise!

  2. Monika says:

    I would say my core strength is excellent, I do however have problems with my low back (inflamed disks due to deadlifting) which I believe might be the issue here.

  3. Monika,

    How is your core strength? If is is inadequate, or your hip flexibility in rotation is poor, you could wind up overusing your legs…

    New one for me as well, only thing I'm concerned with is injuring my knee, because the position just feels uncomoftable for me and I feel like I'm twisting my knee. Any suggestions?

    Cool, Ben that's a new one for me! My clients and boot campers will "love" them!
