Assisted Sit-Ups

Assisted Sit-Ups

Area Targeted: Middle Abs


Set up:

Anchor: Secure the band(s) to the door with the door anchor at knee height.

Bands: No adjustment required

Body Positioning: Grip the handles, or the band itself (right above the nylon from the clips), and lie on your back, with your feet 3 to 4 feet away from the door. Your feet should be flat on the floor and legs bent, with knees up and about 6 inches apart. Position your arms so that they are bent, with your hands together, above your hips. Start with your shoulder blades a couple of inches off the floor.


Movement: Raise your upper body until it is perpendicular with the floor. Return to the starting position. Repeat


Points To Remember:

1. Keep your arms bent at the same angle throughout the movement
2. Keep your head straight, back straight and chest up.
