Thank you, Shelagh! The artwork & photos on your blog are like eye-candy! Definitely spirit-lifting. Lucky you, to be in Nova Scotia. I love the maritime provinces--although it's been too many years since I've visited.

Thank you much for the informative and thorough representation of McGill's work. You have fleshed the post out with informative links that add to the understanding of the message at hand. I appreciate your work and envy your access to the emerging literature in full citation ;). I'll post a link to my blog and feel free to check out things at www.FixYourOwnBack.com and on the attached blog. Cheers!

Shapely Secrets

I always thought a strong core would help support the back, and that crunches were a way to get a strong core. There has to be a way to train the core without the static, isolation movements of all the ab exercises out there. On the other hand, there are programs like Shapely Secrets that works on several different muscles in the core which makes for a quicker, less stressful workout.

Great article. As a physical therapist I can't tell you how many people come in with disc related pain primarily because they've been doing excessive sit-ups. Planks are great exercises to help build core strength.
