Benefits of Doing Sit Ups

– Lie on  your back, ensuring a comfortable surface beneath you. – Bend  your knees, placing your feet flat on the ground, hip-width apart. – Cross  your arms over your chest or position your hands behind your head, but  refrain from pulling on your neck.

Initial Position

– Activate your core muscles. – Elevate your upper body towards your knees, employing your abdominal muscles. – Exhale  during the ascent and inhale as you descend. – Keep your lower back pressed to the mat and avoid straining your neck by  maintaining a straight or slightly forward gaze.

The movement

– Strive for a complete range of motion, reaching up until your elbows or chest      make contact with your knees.

Full Range of Motion

– Execute the exercise in a deliberate, unhurried manner, emphasizing the use of your abdominal muscles over momentum.

Controlled Execution

– Begin with a challenging yet form-preserving number of repetitions. Gradually  increase as your strength builds.

Repetition

– Allow your body sufficient rest intervals between sets.
