  • working on a bed vs the floor?

    I've known for a long time that if I could get on the floor I could work on a lot, but getting there and back not so easy. Was thinking what if I got one of those exercise mats and put it on my bed to make it a bit more firm and used that for safe things like crunches and non rolling movements that might be unsafe? The floor would be better, but would a mat on the bed be a sufficient alternative?

    No, a mat would still sink into the bed and wouldn't offer enough stability to be safe. I can't get onto the floor, so I bought an extra-wide, adjustable-height massage table and use it as an exercise platform - works great. You can buy exercise platforms that are quite wide, but they take up a lot of space and are two or three times as expensive as massage tables. For crunches and non-rolling exercises, the massage table is a real boon.

      This is the table I have: http://astra-lite.com/proseries.html. I bought the Quasar model - very lightweight aluminum and easy adjustment of leg height. I leave it up, but it's quite compact when folded for storage.
