Decline Sit-Ups

JCC personal trainer Sara Williams shows you how to do decline sit-ups, with or without a weighted ball. This exercise mainly targets your abdominal muscles.

How to Set Up

  • Set the decline bench at an angle, anywhere from 30 degrees to 45 degrees. The greater the angle, the harder the sit ups will be.
  • Sit on the bench with legs resting through the pads.

How to Do the Exercise

1.  Cross your arms across your chest. Or if you're using a weighted ball, hold the ball in front of your chest.



2. Lean back until your shoulders touch the bench. Raise yourself back up until your body is vertical, and then lower back down.
