Patient discussion about floor

Q. Is it healthy to do Abdominal Sit-Up on the floor without mattress? during sit-Up without mattress I felt pain in the lower back, and I'm afraid that it might be harmful on the long run

A. Absolutely not!
I used to do it at the gym on a very thin carpet. Ended up at my orthopedic doctor with a lot of pain at my lower back. The doctor told me to abstain workout for the next 2 weeks and warned me to always use a mattress.
