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.
