Max-Reps: Sit Ups

Quickly measure and calculate your endurance

The Sit Up is an important measurement of abdominal and hip-flexor strength. Progress is measured by increases in repetitions. Abdominal strength is important because it stabilizes the body during exercise and will therefore help you to avoid injury as you increase your level of activity.

Max-Reps: Sit Ups Protocol

Purpose

Evaluate the ability of the core and mid body muscle groups to sustain repeated contractions against body weight resistance for an extended period of time or until failure

Equipment

Mat

Procedure

Participant lies in a supine position on their matt with knees bent at approximately 45 degrees with feet flat on the floor and slightly apart. His or her hands should rest at their side flat on the floor. Instruct the participant to tuck their chin to their chest and begin contracting anterior abdominal muscles until their upper back is off the mat and hands have moved forward approximately 5 inches. Keeping heels in contact with the mat, once the participant reaches the top of the movement he or she can slowly return their upper back to the floor and continue repetitions.
