i am relearning how to use my body. i injured my lower back pretty badly a couple weeks ago while doing handstands and after a break from exercise i can finally do yoga again. i figured out the reason i got hurt was because my core is too weak and i use my back, arms, shoulders, neck, and legs to do all the work and exclude any core strength, so my back overcompensated and strained/sprained. doing situps or boat poses has always caused the muscles on the side of my neck to go CRAZY and i have these ginormous trapezius muscles…i just spent the past hour teaching myself how to do ab exercises without using my neck. i currently have to hold on to my hair with my hands to deactivate my neck and my guts are in pain haha. next: how to calm my shoulders down. any tips?
