Medicine Ball Situps

Sit-ups are a functional exercise which mimics sitting up from a lying position. Adding medicine balls to sit-ups increases the difficulty by adding resistance. Extending the arms during the sit-ups also works the triceps and anterior deltoids. Placing your feet under something or having a partner hold your feet to the floor makes medicine ball situps easier while performing them without anchoring your feet to the ground increases the challenge. These medicine ball sit-ups can be performed alone or with a partner or trainer and can be modified by adding throws, rebounders, etc.
