Re: Told to never lift more than 20lbs...ever!

i was wondering about weight restirctions as well bec i work as a paramedic and lift ppl for a living. i researched about the sit ups/abdominal crunches and found out that these exercises create abdominal pressure towards the pelvic floor area and if it is not strong enough will cause prolapse. i will be doing kegels(there is an app for that) after my brachytherapy and do lots of weight training before i start lifting ppl again.
