And that's all I have to say about that.
Doing sit-ups is a quick way to get stronger abdominal muscles if done properly.
*Lie down on the floor with your upper knees bent, the balls of your feet and heels on the ground.
*Place your hands behind the lobes of your ears, or even hold your ears.(Grabbing the back of head or neck may cause injury down the road.)
*Tighten your abdominal muscles by drawing in your belly button to your spine.
*Keeping your heels on the ground, slowly lift your head and shoulder blades off the floor with a contraction of the abdominal muscles. Get up off the floor as high as you are comfortable with. Try to keep your back straight, like you were practicing proper posture.
*Hold the position for a second then slowly bring the torso back to the floor but try to keep it slightly off the ground (i.e. try not to "lie" on the floor).
*Repeat steps 3-5 for the remainder of the exercise.
