Liz: So this is an awkward question…
Liz: You keep telling me to “flex my abs,” but really, I don’t have any, and I don’t know how to flex my non-existent abs. So I just suck in when you tell me to “flex”…
Trainer: **placing hand on my stomach** Flex
Liz: **trying not to die, as omigod there’s a hand on my stomach, tries to “flex”
Trainer: You’re doing it naturally, you’re fine
Liz: Huh, really?!? How about that… I really always thought I was too big to flex.
Sweet everything in life I’ve been wondering this same damn thing and have been too chicken to ask anyone. My neuro doctor told me I needed to get my abs strong (or ya know actually use them) to help my back but I didn’t/don’t know what that means. Like how do you purposefully *use* them when you don’t think you have them?!? Am I the only one who thought abs were something only skinny/fit people had?! Omg this is fabulous!
E you are the wind beneath my wings!
