Press Sit-Up

The decline press sit-up is a weighted core exercise targeting the abdominal muscles, particularly the lower abs. It also challenges the shoulders and upper back to move the weight. Weighted sit-up variations are usually performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set or more, as part of the core-focused portion of a workout.

Benefits

  1. Allows you to train in lower rep ranges when bodyweight decline sit-ups become too easy
  2. Weighted ab training can help the core muscles grow and look more defined
  3. Also challenges the shoulders, serratus anterior, upper back, and hip flexors
