I spend a great deal of time at my hooking frame. That translates into a not insignificant amount of time of me sitting on my rump. I combat the sedentary portions of my day with walking and running and, depending on the season, kayaking or cross country skiing. Still, after a couple hours sitting in one spot, my lower back starts to tweak and my shoulders to ache. In response to these annoyances, I’ve been working on my posture, form (Yes! There is good form for hookers!), and flexibility, and throwing in a little bit of strength training intermittently throughout my day. Stogie, however, has decided that sit-ups are a core bonding exercise rather than a core building one. That’s just how we roll around here.
