Hello all! Whenever I do pilates, I end up hurting/injuring my neck. I must be pulling on it when doing a “crunch” position (for 100s, etc). No matter how hard I try to use my abs and not pull on my neck, my neck ends up sore.
I don’t have the strongest abs in the world, so maybe I am just weak?
Any thoughts? I suppose I should just do those exercises with my neck/head on the floor? I feel like I am the only one this happens to - hah!
This doesn’t happen when I do yoga, I think because yoga poses usually don’t have the upper body in that “crunch” position as much.
