Overview

The situp with arms on chest is an exercise that targets the abdominal muscles, particularly the rectus abdominis or six-pack muscles. It is a of the traditional situp in which the arms are placed across the chest instead of behind the head. This helps to isolate the abdominal muscles and prevent the use of momentum from the arms and legs, To perform a situp with arms on chest, lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Place your hands across your chest and engage your core muscles. Slowly sit up until your torso is at a 90-degree angle to the floor. Hold this position for a few seconds before slowly lowering back down to the starting position, This exercise can be performed for multiple sets and repetitions. As you get stronger, you can increase the difficulty by adding weight to your chest or by doing the exercise on an incline bench.
