|A sit-up routine will do wonders for your regularity. If you find it's too much on your back, you can buy a sit-up 'machine' that allows you to support your back and neck without removing the essential ab muscle work-out from your routine. Many people don't work their abs as they have neck problems. A sit up machine, which is essentially a roller, allows you to work the abs without pulling your neck out of place. An alternative is bent knee sit ups where one only stresses the abdominals and does not put the stress on the neck. |
The main problem is that no one is concerned with maintaining regularity until it does not occur. Then it's a bit late. We tend to overreact to a natural cycle using the right techniques in an excessive manner and it does little to help the underlying problem. Once the cycle is disrupted the swings begin to increase and we are caught in a series of excesses.
