Coach's Tips

It's an effective workout for the entire core. However, if you do it incorrectly, it can hurt your back, so please fix it strongly with your thighs and do it in the correct posture!

How to Sit Up

Starting Position

1. Lie down on your back on a mat, and place your feet flat on the floor hip-width apart.

2. Bend your knees and place your hands on either side of your head, with your elbows bent.

Proper Form

1. Exhale and tighten your core muscles as you lift your shoulder blades off the ground.

2. Keep your chin slightly tucked in as you lift your upper body.

3. Hold the position for a few seconds at the top, then slowly lower your body back down to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. As you lower your body, inhale and prepare for the next repetition.

2. As you lift your body, exhale and tighten your core muscles.


1. Avoid arching your back or lifting your head too high, as this can put strain on your neck and lower back.

2. If you feel pain in your lower back, stop and rest.

3. Make sure your feet remain flat on the ground at all times.
