There's more to CORE TRAINING than doing a bunch of high reps sit ups and crunches. And more doesn't mean better. Doing these exercises improperly, can actually cause major damage to your neck, and if you have per-existing back problems they can stimulate muscle spasms and may be re-injure your back.
Here's a tip. Instead of just pulling your belly button in, and trying to hold your stomach in, look forward, lift your chin to a normal relaxed position, eyes facing forward, lift your chest, instead of rounding your shoulders forward, pull them back and to a normal relaxed position and now pull your navel towards your spine. You will feel two inches taller, more confident, you can breathe better, your diaphragm is lifted where it's suppose to be and it's a lot easier to hold that position. If you do this while in line, while you're at work, sitting, brushing your teeth, you get the message, and yes when you're working out, you'll start to straighten your core daily, without even thinking about it. <<<< IT'S CALLED AN ISOMETRIC CONTRACTION >>>>
