What exercise can I do to replace sit ups for now? I tried doing them again this morning and the sharp pain is still there...
What kind of pains do u have?
Maybe try to make situp on a chair?
Sharp pains above my hip on both sides.
Take a couple days off from sit ups and try more gentlytry crossing one legso your foot touches ur knee then sit up
Do u have this pain in any other workouts?
Lay off situps for a week and try abs rollout box jumps and planks in the meantime to strengthen your core :)
Ok try the other ones...
It may also be gas... check it out, and one very important things when you ate doing sit ups is to exhale whenever you are compressing your body... otherwise you will put a lot of pressure on your organs...
For more info check the topic good to know...
I do those already. I do sit ups, crunches, leg raises, planks and squats everyday.
Just vary the exercise and limit your bending forward at the hip or lifting the legs up. And your twisting exercises
Listen to your body,any pain stop straight away,you may have pulled a muscle and if u dont rest may hurt more,did with me,no tummy exercises for while
Instead of sit-ups do reverse crunches. Instead of lifting your body to your knees, bring your knees to your chest and breath out and squeeze your abdominals tightly at the top of the motion. Regular crunches put a lot of strain on your hip flexors which could be the pain you're feeling. Crunches are worthless mostly anyway lol.
