Exercise Sit Ups

Nov 22, 2007
As an effective form of exercise sit ups are one of the very best things that you could do for yourself. Although many people will tell you that there are better ab exercises that you could do, it can't be denied that the sit up is right up there with the best of them when it comes to working your ab muscles to get firm flat abs, or when you want to have six pack abs.

Most likely the bad reputation of sit ups has been earned through not so much the perceived ineffectiveness of the sit ups, but through the fact that unless they are performed properly, they simply will not give you an added benefit. You will only be doing sit ups for the sake of doing sit ups if you don't do them with the right technique and form.

Another thing that you will want to know about sit ups, is that no matter how good they are as an exercise sit ups performed incorrectly can lead to injuries in the neck, back and shoulder area particularly. However, this is only if you do not perform the sit ups properly. This is also why it is a good idea for you to get proper training and instruction on how to do sit ups - however silly that might sound - before you truly embark on a course of action which involves your doing any exercise sit ups especially.

If however, you are doing any form of exercise sit ups included, you will want to make sure that you are doing exercise which is suitable for your own personal level of fitness. Without this, you might be over taxing yourself, which can in and of itself lead you to injury.

The best thing that you can do when embarking on a course of exercise is to either consult with a doctor about what you should and shouldn't do, or go in for a routine physical so that you can know where you stand on the scale of things.

Exercise is not something that should be undertaken lightly. You can do it on your own and you can learn how to do all of these exercises and things on your own, but unless you know how to do them properly, using the proper form and technique, you will find that you are simply not getting as much benefit from your exercise sit ups included, as you would if you were doing it the way it was meant to be. And this is why it's always good if you can first of all get proper instruction on how to go about things, from someone who knows what they're doing.
