GHD Situp

A great warmup tool for the hips and midline.  Be sure to read the Safety information below and watch the demo video with explanation HERE.


Safety Tip:  Do not perform high volume reps or the full extension without having multiple rounds of exposure to the movement first!  As a general guideline, do not perform more than 15 reps in a row or more than 50 reps total in any one session.  Begin with your arms across your chest and lower to just below parallel.  Ask your instructor if you have any questions!


Scaling Suggestions:

As written above, always scale the number of reps and reduce the range of motion if you are just gaining exposure to the movement


Perform regular situps


Mobility Suggestions:
