Get Started With Sit Up (Weighted)
Start by lying flat on your back on an exercise mat with your hands behind your head.
Place a weight plate on your stomach and hold it in place with your hands.
Keeping your lower back pressed into the mat, use your abdominal muscles to lift your upper body until it is at least 45 degrees from the ground.
Hold for a few seconds and then lower your body back to the mat.
Repeat for the desired number of reps.
