One Hundred And Fifteen Sit-ups And More To Go – Video
One Hundred And Fifteen Morning Sit-ups
At forty six years old I am working on my killer abs. When I started doing sit-ups again I started at a modest thirty and they burned my stomach.
I knew I had my work cut out for me to get my stomach strong again, but my abs weren’t going anywhere so I could take my time.
Getting from thirty to sixty took some doing. It was hard to get from thirty to thirty-five and so on. I knew I had to be patient because my abs were out of condition and this was a shock to them.
So i continued on and started doing sit-up exercises in the morning and in the evening. I leveled off at sixty because I didn’t feel I needed to do anymore than that. That was until another goal came along.
Since the core holds it all together I decided to focus more on my core and add more repetitions to my sit-ups. From sixty I am up to one hundred and fifteen repetitions in the morning and evening.
I do change it up in the evenings and I may substitute the sit-ups with leg raises or some other variation. I think I will work to get to one hundred and fifty sit-ups straight and stay there for a while. I think that is a reasonable goal for now. I used to be able to do three hundred straight, so I will see what happens next.
The thing I didn’t like about doing three hundred sit-ups straight is that I would rub the skin off my butt. That is not a nice feeling, and now I make sure to slap on some shea butter.
Yeah, that is my “Tough Mudder” headband I received for finishing the “Tough Mudder.”
