    An exercise scientist explains why you shouldn’t do sit-ups or crunches:

    Besides push ups, crunches are the one type of exercise that I can do conveniently right out of bed.

    Any thoughts on this? How about hanging leg crunches, do you think this makes up for not doing crunches?

    I love any article that tells me not to do crunches haha. The only crunch i’m familiar with is captain crunch ๐Ÿ˜‰

    But seriously I want to make it a goal to exercise for real. I walk a few times a week, but beyond that, there is always resistance when I try to get serious.

    I think it is all about balance, even if you don’t do specific exercises. I would rather say that I walk, eat decently well, have social time, have downtime, go to work, and pursue goals.

    I am absolutely someone who can easily get locked into thinking that one way is the “best” and “only” way to do things, which can mess me up and halt progress.
