How To Do Weighted Decline Sit-Ups

  • Lay on a decline bench with your legs hooked so that you are stable.
  • Begin by, holding a weight over your chest or at arm’s length over your shoulders, as you curl your chest towards your hips and raising your torso off the bench until you are sitting vertically.
  • Then control the descent, reversing the motion, until just before your shoulder blades touch the bench.
  • Repeat for repetitions while maintaining tension on your abdominals and holding the weight in the same position throughout.
