Sit Up

Burns: 85 Calories in 10 minutes

How To:  This exercise requires the movement to come from your top half. You do not want to move your lower half during this movement. Your back should be flat against the floor, feet slightly apart, knees bent. Keep your feet grounded. Using your abdominal muscles bring yourself up off the floor, head first then shoulders, into a sitting position. Key is to slowly lower yourself back using the same muscles on your way down.

Muscles Used: Rectus Femoris, Rectus Abdominis and Obliques.

This exercise is not intended for single workout use. The calories burned is used to show the difference between each exercise. When you look at the Squat for example, it burns so many more calories than the bicep curl. I want you ladies to see why I do pair certain exercises together.
This way, you ladies will be able to look at the exercise library (soon to come) and say, ” ok, I want to burn a lot of calories this week. I am going to put this exercise in this week (squat) and this one (lunge) and I’ll add a less calorie burning one (bicep curl) so I don’t get too tired….”  You will be able to create your own workouts and have a strategic look at what you want to include in your circuits.

    What workout program should I use? I have adrenal burnout, and hypothyroid, is it ok to
    do high intensity training with this? also do your programs come with a diet?
    Thank you for your time.

      Hey Lisa,
      You will have to ask your doctor about what kind of exercise intensity you can use with your condition. Both of Flavia’s programs come with a complete nutrition plan. 🙂
      All the best!

    Is it possible for a female of 23 yrs old to manage 40?

    I start hurting by the time I reach 45, I try daring myself to go the extra mile in reps but end up having a 15 minute rest before attempting another 10 after the 40.

    yes I am a daredevil.
