OK people, i hesitated to ask this the first couple of times but now i need a solution.  Did Annie on a pretty tough surface the other day and still have a large abrasion over sacrum/coccyx area which is pretty limiting now.  this invariably seems to happen during high rep sit ups.  I have never heard anyone else mention it.  Does anyone have a slolution?  I have used different mats before.  I am wondering if “bicycle type” shorts would be the answer….acting like a second skin. 
thanks

That’s what he’s saying, it’s been discussed before.
Search for posts with “monkey butt” in them and look for a post by me with “butt lube” in it.
That should turn up most of them.

i actually bought these “under armour” compression heat gear shorts in lieu of underwear.  I was hoping that they would eliminate any chafing.  didn’t totally work but it helped doing yesterdays wod which included 90 abmats.  need to also try the powder with the shorts….literally a pain in the ass!

under armour plus yoga mat plus anti-monkey-butt powder works pretty well, but I haven’t found anything that totally gets rid of it when we go above 100 situps.  That’s one reason I like the GHD.  No monkey butt.  There are other reasons I dislike the GHD…

Anyone? Bueller?

the last two times i got it the common denominator was “no mat”....both times on hard gym rubber floors.

our lead trainer has a theory.—the more monkey butt you get, the more you need to focus on keeping your hips on the deck during abmats.
