CAN’T DO A SIT UP? HERE’S HOW TO GET STARTED!

If you can’t do a sit up, a good way to start is to begin in the “up” position. Sit on your mat, knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Place your arms across your chest. Your elbows should be touching your knees. Begin the descent as slow as you can. Aim at going down in a 3 second count. Once your head reaches the mat, extend your arms over your head and use your arms to “swing” up to the sitting position. Repeat the slow descent for 8 to 10 repetitions. Work up to going down in a 5 second count. This slow descent will train and strengthen your abdominals. Be patient and consistent. In time, you will need less arm swing for momentum and use more power from your abdominal muscles.
