Negative Situp for Women
- Sit with your feet flat on the floor and your legs bent--as if you had just performed a situp.
- Slowly lower your body. The movement should be fluid, not jerky--if it's the latter, you need to use a variation that's easier. Slowly bring your torso back to the starting position.
Tip During a negative situp, try to lower your torso at the same rate from start to finish. If you can't control your speed, identify the point at which you start to collapse and hold just above that point for 5 seconds on each repetition.
