Overhead Sit-Up with Resistance Band – Core Exercises

Overhead Sit-Up with Resistance Band – Core Exercises

This is one of the more advanced core exercises for building explosive strength. If you’re capable, but are not doing overhead sit-ups on a regular basis for some reason then you are missing out on some big gains!

WHO SHOULD USE THIS EXERCISE?

Recommended for intermediate to advanced gym goers. It might be a good idea to start with Single Arm Overhead KB Sit-ups if you have not yet built up enough strength to use band with both arms: https://immortal-training.com/single-arm-overhead-kb-sit-up/

WHICH MUSCLES DOES THIS EXERCISE TARGET?

  • Rectus Abdominis
  • Transverse Abdominis

WHAT ARE THE KEY POINTS?

  • Attach the band to a stable apparatus
  • Lay flat on your back, knees bent, with your feet on the floor
  • Hold the band with both hands, extend your arms towards the ceiling and keep the elbows locked
  • Explode upwards whilst driving your lower back into the ground
  • Your arms should be above your head when you are completely sat up
  • Lower yourself back down slowly and repeat
