Description

The incline sit up is a superb ab builder. This exercise has been the staple of bodybuilders, athletes, and weekend warriors for ages. There's good reason, it works.

This exercise hits the entire ab region from top to bottom. The sit up can be done on the floor, or on an incline bench. Beware, the incline sit up is a little more difficult.

If you want a good 9 week muscle building / fat burning program I highly recommend you take a look at Kyle Leon's program called "Somanabolic Muscle Maximizer" The reason why I'm recommending this program is because it is the only one I know of that uses a proprietary software to customize a complete muscle building and fat burning nutrition program for you. The system uses:

  • Body type;
  • Gender;
  • Age;
  • Metabolism; And
  • Activity levels

To produce a 9 week muscle building course that includes a weight training program and custom nutrition system. Check it out here.

I've actually purchased and used the program myself. You can read my review of this program at:
