reverse curl up issues after Back Block

I actually bought your Back Block in the UK over 12 maybe even 15 yrs ago. I'm now living in Malaysia and my back pain has been getting worse and tried lots of pyhsio, chiropractic and treatments and exercises but nothing really worked.
While search the net i came accross your site and remembered my old back block that i hardly used after having a try only once or twice. So i tried your method with a book and it really helped with the lower back pain and hyperlordosis i have. I did it for a few days and asked my mum to send over my old back block.
Problem im having is the 3r part when i go into the Reverse curl up, As soon as i let go of my knees after bracing my abs they immediately bulge out and as hard as i try what feels like more my upper abs bulge out and my lower abs dont seem to engage. This is strainig my lower back and after the exercises i stand up walk around feeling my lower back muscles really tight and uncomfortable.
I have a small lumbar cushion and i tried the reverse curl up with that under my lumbar spine and it was much better. My abs did not bulge and i got a feeling for the lower abs working and got a bit of a burn.
Do you think it is ok to after rocking the knees to use the lumbar cushion under my lower back while doing the reverse curl ups without losing any of the benefits from the practice?
