Sit-ups

Google sit-up, situps or sit up and you’ll find the first 20 websites are against the sit-up.  Why the hate?  The majority of those sites have some product to peddle or magic pill to sell.  A few references are good and provide substantive caution regarding sit-ups and crunches.

I include a variety of sit-up forms and other ab exercises 3-4 times a week.  One of my first blog posts addressed core and pillar strength.  As we continue the exercise exploration in 2011 – I hope to share that core and pillar strength is so much more than just strong 6 or 8 pack abs.  It’s your entire trunk which benefits from complex, whole body movement

For now, situps are OK.  Shine some love on them.  No hate!
