Okay, I wouldn’t even classify this as an injury but its getting on my nerves. Whenever I try to do direct ab work my abs seize up and can sometimes go in to a spasm that actually hurts. For example, if I’m doing leg raises on the floor and my feet are up at the top of the movement and then my abs freak out, my legs will just crash to the ground and I dare not try to sit up right away.
A little background, I’ve never had this problem before. I then decided not to do any direct ab work for about 18 months and relied on squats and deads for my abs. Now that I’m trying to directly work my abs I find I cant really do anything but planks…Kinda annoying. Any thoughts?
