Sit Up

Sit up exercises are the basic abdominal moves for any workout routine. This exercise is perfect for sculpting and toning your abdominal muscles. The first benefit of this exercise is that the abs strengthen. Second, it tones and tightens. Third, whittles down your waistline. Also, focuses on the hip flexors, chest and legs because of the range of motion. Who wants to increase core strength? You’ve got it.

There are a few things to remember when doing this exercise. As always, engage your core and keep your abdominals tight! Then, relax your neck, shoulders and back. Equally important is to breath out as you lift with your abs into the crunch. Finally, breath out as you slowly return to your starting position. One last thing, roll down one vertebrae at a time. Always, respect your limits.
