I'll do something similar with a 20lb medicine ball:

Sit up position, medicine ball overhead on floor, pull ball to chest, do a sit up and transition to your feet, do a wall ball throw to a 10' target, catch the ball and sit down, lay back and do it all again.

I have never done it with my feet held down, but usually the ball helps overcome any momentum issues.

Jeremy,I will have to try it like that.Sounds like it would hit most every muscle group at some point.

I'm not one often rocked by new exercises, coming from a bodyweight/gymnastics background. These are burpees/squat thrusts on crack.

Awesome.

yup, I do those and everyone stares in awe. I can't understand why. :g: Recently I started doing them with a medball, but I don't pull the ball to my chest. I try to hold it locked out overhead through the whole movement. But, I don't have a wall to throw it against. Darn!

It looks like he is doing a "janda" situp rather than having is feet held down ... the trainer is pulling against his calves, meaning that he needs to engage his glutes/hammys therefore elminating hip flexor from the situp. Done properly janda situps are very challenging.

Janda situps - so that's what they're called? I never realized how challenging they were until I had other people try them. :biggrin: Not a one could do them. It hits the legs a lot more than the abs.

Hmm, never even thought of doing those before. It's a situp and ATG squat that begins at an angle and that leans forwards.
