Core/abs strengthening exercises that don't strain neck?
I'm still 2 months away from my surgery (2-level ACDF) and I don't have any doctor-imposed restrictions on my activity right now, other than what my body simply can't do (because of weak leg and arm).
Before my surgery, I'd really like to do what I can to strengthen my abs/core, since I'm sure it will help after surgery, but the only thing I know to do are crunches/situps, and those put too much of an uncomfortable strain on my neck.
Can anyone suggest exercises that can really help with abs and core strengthening but don't put any significant strain on your neck?
