Dumbbell Press SitUps

Sit-ups are somewhat of a forgotten abdominal exercise because they are often performed improperly and for the wrong reasons. Although sit-ups may not be the best abdominal exercise, they surely are essential for anyone involved in a sport which requires someone to 'sit up' from a lying position on the floor. Adding a dumbbell shoulder press exponentially increases the difficulty of sit-ups as they add a second muscle group as well as increased resistance for the abdominals and hip flexors. These dumbbell press situps are not for the beginner.
