How to Do Sit-ups with CrossFit Duluth's Dale Collison

Full range of motion is key for proper sit-ups


Today we're going to talk about the sit-up. What I'm focusing on in the sit-up is the full range of motion. So I'm going all the way back, making sure my shoulders touch the floor, and I'm coming all the way up where my ears have crossed the plane of my hips.

Another way of making sure you hit these standards is you can use your hands. Go back and touch the floor, and come all the way up and touch your feet. So you're getting that full range of motion.

So modifications:
You can face the wall and put your toes into the wall and that will help support you.

Other options include tucking your toes under something like a couch or having someone hold your toes.
