Overview

The quarter situp is an exercise that targets the abdominal muscles, particularly the rectus abdominis or six-pack muscles. It is a of the traditional situp that is less stressful on the back. To perform a quarter situp, lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Place your hands behind your head and slowly lift your shoulders off the ground until your upper back is at a 45degree angle. Hold this position for a few seconds, then slowly lower back down. Repeat for 10-12 repetitions. The quarter situp is a great way to strengthen your abdominal muscles without putting too much strain on your back.
