  1. Angle a bench downward. Hook your feet under the pad and hold a weight plate on your chest.
  2. Exhale and curl your body up off the bench until your elbows touch your thighs. Slowly return to the start.

DID YOU KNOW? The decline situp works not only the abs but also the hips, making you a better runner and stronger squatter. The extra weight forces maximum recruitment of the rectus abdominis, promoting growth of the six-pack muscle so it can show even under your shirt.

Quick Tip

  • Start with a shallow angle to get used to the exercise and make it steeper over time.
