Re: What ab exercises can I do with back problems?

Sit-ups: Just bring shoulders off the ground and do more reps.
I was an avid body builder and blew the bottom disk.
This has kept me from lifting any weight with my back.
Be very careful lifting ... ALWAYS!

FYI:
Doc says back injuries take a while to heal!

Well I guess so, mine is still bad after 25 years.
