Assisted Sit Ups With Resistance Bands

Do you need help with your sit-ups? Assist your abs with resistance bands.

Anchor the band at the bottom of the door. Grip the handles, or the band itself, and lie on your back, with your feet 3 to 4 feet away from the door. Your feet should be flat on the floor and knees bent. Also bend your arms, with your hands together, above your hips.

Start with your shoulder blades a couple of inches off the floor.

Exhale and contract your abs, raising your upper body until it´s perpendicular to the floor while keeping your head and back aligned.

Inhale and return to the starting position. Repeat.

  1. Chape,
    Never used resistance bands for sit ups, but I definitely like the use of resistance bands for other exercise. They are inexpensive, light and come in a variety of resistance levels. I think they benefit anyone, especially useful for those who are deconditioned or have had a prior injury and need rehab 🙂
