How to Perform the Sit Up Boxer

Starting Position
You will need a mat or carpet for this exercise. Sitdown on the mat with the back of your heels touching the ground. Make two fist as if you are getting ready to box… Which you are…


Action
INHALE: Lean back with your upper body until the upper part of your back touches the floor (under shoulder blades.)
EXHALE:Sit back up to the starting position. Make sure your heels don’t come off of the ground. Then take 1 punch left, 1 punch right, 1 punch left, then 1 punch right. Repeat


Tips
Keep your abs tight. Make sure your heels stay on the ground as much as you can. To make this easier walk your heels further away from your bottom. To make it harder, walk your heels closer to your bottom
