Today's WOD or anyday

Hi,

Just wondering what situp excercise to use when asked to do situps

Legtucks
L-situps

From the FAQ (wfs)

Quote:
Whatever you like; recommend picking one style and sticking with it so you can compare performance over time. Lots of folks like the ab-mat. Some of us do "military" situps, which come in a couple of flavors. Hard-core: Hands behind head, feet anchored, knees at 90�. All the way back until base of shoulder-blades hit the floor; up to near vertical. Or "Air Force" version: arms crossed in front, hands on shoulders or arms; feet and legs as above. Down position same as above; up to where elbows touch knees or thighs. Hands must stay on shoulders or arms. "Janda" situps are tough; you place a bar, board, partner's hands, or whatever behind your calves. Keep your feet flat on the floor; dig in with your heels and pull back hard with your calves against the bar. This should de-activate your hip flexors, thereby making your abs work harder.
Look there first, next time.
