  • I like that you told us the reasons the exercise might not work for us. But I really liked that you gave us alternatives. - 6/24/2016 10:14:12 AM
  • Good info! I know I've been taught all of these at some point! - 6/10/2016 1:03:54 PM

    As a PT for going on 5 years now, this article concisely sums up what I've had to explain a thousand times over and with accurate and detailed information. Love it, the industry needs more like this. - 2/28/2016 10:44:49 AM
  • I have also heard from reliable sources that side lifts on a roman chair are dangerous because they might cause a disc in your back to slip out of place. - 2/26/2016 1:11:11 PM
  • Thank you, very good to know what not to do. - 2/24/2016 7:27:06 PM
  • Thank you! - 2/24/2016 6:37:59 AM
  • Interesting! - 1/9/2016 6:43:42 PM
  • Thank you...this is a great article. As a yoga instructor, you are spot on about the ab work and how too often the improper alignment or form will put stress on the lower back. And the knee extensions! I really did not know ...thanks. - 12/29/2015 11:50:04 AM
  • When I was a kid and played football, I had to do many hovering leg lifts. The coaches always said they were good for the muscles around the thigh, including the hamstrings. Those lifts tortured my back, and I'm convinced that ever since then that they are the cause of my backaches whenever I twist to either side. - 12/20/2015 10:15:44 PM
  • Great article.!!! Especially like the resistance band alternative's.

    Thanks for this well described workout info!! - 9/8/2015 12:23:58 PM
  • I threw my back out doing "Hovering Leg Lifts" a month ago and I'm still recovering. - 8/16/2015 3:20:48 PM
  • Great info, thanks for providing options...I appreciate that you included visuals, they sure help. - 8/15/2015 7:14:08 AM
    #2 is absolutely true in my case. Felt something happen during one set and the lower back has never been the same. - 8/14/2015 10:21:50 AM

    Use the leg press for quads and hamstrings. I'm on the shady side of 65 and have been doing this for years. You can follow your improvement as you add weight every now and then. I kind of resent all the attention given to floor exercises. Some of us, for whatever reason, have difficulty getting up/down from the floor. I'd like to see a second option when recommending floor exercises. - 5/19/2015 11:31:03 PM
  • yes, i used to do these very exercises, no wonder I my hips hurt for a year or more after this. - 3/21/2015 5:11:29 PM
