Suitcase Sit-Ups Overview

It is yet another variation of classic sit-ups. The abs are the main targeted muscles of sit-ups. The curling motion in this variation demands a lot of control. It engages the core more than the classic version of the exercise does. 

How to Do it

  1. Lie on your back with straight legs extended a little off the floor in front of you and your hands behind your head.
  2. At the same time, lift your upper body into a crunch and bring your knees to your chest so they meet your elbows.
  3. Lower your upper body back onto the floor and extend your legs long so they're hovering a few inches above the floor. 
  4. Repeat

Tips on Suitcase Sit-Ups

  1. If suitcase sit-ups are too difficult for you, ease your way into them by first mastering knee tucks.
