Partner target sit-up

The partner target sit-up is a core exercise where one partner performs sit-ups, while the other uses his or her hands to create a target for them to reach for. This increases the challenge of each rep. It can be performed for time or reps in the ab-focused portion of any workout.


  1. Strengthens the rectus abdominis or "six-pack" muscles, as well as obliques
  2. Partner can make the target more or less challenging as needed
