Decline Weighted Sit Up Overview

The weighted decline sit ups are a great way to target the muscles in your stomach area. By adding weight to your body, you are able to increase the intensity of the exercise and really work those muscles. This is a great exercise for people who are looking to tone their stomach area and get rid of that stubborn belly fat.

How to Do it

  1. Start by lying on the decline bench with your feet hooked under the pads and your weight in your lap.
  2. Slowly sit up while contracting your abs and exhaling.
  3. Once you are sitting all the way up, slowly lower yourself back down to the starting position.
  4. Repeat for desired reps.

Decline Weighted Sit up Tips

  1. Adding weights can target your core harder 
  2. Keeping the back straight and not rounding it as you come towards the knees is the real trick in this exercise
