Description

The Roman chair sit up is often termed, the "Rocky" sit up because this is the movie that made this exercise popular.

This exercise is very effective but one that shouldn't be attempted by beginners. This is a very advanced exercise and on that is very difficult to perform.

If you can't do regular sit ups yet, you shouldn't attempt this exercise. Try this exercise once you have mastered the regular or incline sit up. Also, this exercise puts alot of strain on the lower back so if you have problems in this area, stay away from this exercise.
