What a timely email article! I've been struggling with what to do with this area for a few weeks now. I had surgery late last fall and it required a Herman Munster incision from one side of my abdomen to the other. I used to be able to do crunches without any difficutly and now I'm like a beetle on my back with legs and arms flailing!
I started a running program and am enjoying it but found I was struggling with the pain in my core region after the run and all the next day. I feel the lack of strength in this area has been stopping me from making greater progress with the running. If I can get this area built back up, anything is possible!
So I'm off to get working on that transversus abdominis!
