Butterfly Situps

Butterfly Situps

Using an ab mat is to make you focus on abdominal muscles and not just your hip flexors. Butterfly situps are an efficient way of getting up off the ground from a laying position. You can use your arms for further momentum to be able to get up off the ground in the lying position in a seated position. Start (as below) by placing feet close together with the ab mat underneath the lumbar curvature of your spine.
