I am 6 months grain free. I had 30 years of symptoms. I still have bloating in my abdomen. I also am having some mild pains there. One day the MD asked me to do one sit up. I am generally really a marshmallow for whatever a doctor says to do, but I refused. She wondered why. I said because I was afraid I would tear something. I like to excercise in other ways, but just now I am leaving that tummy alone. Has anyone tried to overcome this fear, or has anyone done sit-ups to their advantage?
It is imperative that you overcome this fear. You should be able to perform a situp without tearing. Physical muscle is critical to your long term health. Avoidance will only exacerbate the issue. Sit-ups, push ups, squats, and lunges are four exercises that everyone should be able to perform with relative ease.
