Default Re: doing sit-ups without feet stabilized?

Herschel Walker has probably done the most total situps in World History.

He's planning a comeback to the NFL at age 50. I need to see more studies that definitively show the damage done to the back to believe it. I'm not denying them, but it doesn't seem to be widespread enough to make it conclusive.

He's also a freak of nature.

Yeah, but surely he's not the only human with a back that will allow him to do many situps with no issues.

It's an exercise that many athletes have as part of their regimen and their backs fare just fine throughout life.

Maybe it's the way certain people are anatomically structured? Or maybe some people should work on strengthening their lower back first on a roman chair or something before doing situps hardcore.

maybe the best way to find out for sure is to spend the next 20 years doing lots of situps, see how much or how little damage you wind up doing to your lower back, and then report back here and let us know.

i for one will be free that day. ^^
