Now that you’ve mastered good technique for the basic sit-up, this second move will focus on the oblique abdominals, the muscles on both sides of your abdomen.

Lie on a firm surface.

Drop both knees to one side, place your hands behind your head, with your elbows out to the sides.

Keep your chin slightly tilted forward so the neck is neutral, without a curve.

At a slow and steady pace, lift your head and shoulders off the floor, … and lower down.

Continue for about 10-15 repetitions keeping proper form and technique. 

Then position your knees on the other side, and continue slowly for the same number of reps.

More varieties of sit-ups are on the way.
