I am in the middle of writing an introductary textbook on strength
training for my students at Texas A&M. I am getting ready to write a
chapter on abdominal exercises and I have run into a stumbling block - I
am having trouble finding information on possible dangers to the lower
back from abdominal exercises that are performed incorrectly or
performed before a sufficient strength base has been developed. Can
anyone out there help point me in the right direction?
Thank you for your time.
