RE:Hip hop abs sore in back no burn in front!

I just started doing hip hop abs so I understand I may not be doing everything 100 % right but I feel pain in my back and no burn in my abs. I am pretty sure I have been doing it the best I can with the tilt, tuck, tighten thing but I don't know if I should feel more in front. Obviously, doing crunches before I have felt strained muscles. I know after being used to something it is not supposed to hurt but I don't seem to feel a burn in the front during the workout. I wonder if I am just missing something during the workout because I keep it in mind to tighten my abs or if it's just a less straineous process and I am doing something with these abs and not knowing it. I just have a lot of strain in my back. Please help! Thank you!

hello lets see if we can clear a few things up for ya kido first i am doing p90x and the ab ripperx workout is the best one i have ever seen but when i started it i did not get real sore but i did feel it in my lower back just like you are i also felt it in my legs at the very top[hip flexers].be careful my back has gotten stronger now but i still fell it, Tony horton would say listen to your body.keep doing your workouts see if it gets better i think it will, i have lots of people ask me lots of questions about a lot of things my ansewrs are mostly positive because thats who i am. sometimes though i have got to give someone a kick in the pants because they are just looking for a reason not to workout,oh they have all kinds of reasons like today i had a guy crying about fat% well i ask him do want to be in great shape or do you want to spend the rest of your life checking bodyfat% these programs are world class thats why beachbody is so big now people know that they can get the help they need here. i hope this helps RALPHY
