I recently joined the Army National Guard, and started working on my sit ups a lot because thats a huge weakness for me. I am 5'8 145 pounds, not someone who is overweight or even close to it. I consider my self to be in good shape and health.
So ive been doing situps for just over a week now, hoping to start seeing the smallest improvement and honestly im not seeing anything and its becoming very frustrating. Most of the time I can not do more than 10 sit ups at a time, I have to stop after 10 a rest for a while. I have tried to do a few without having my feet under something and I can not even come close. Its like I feel like my brain isint sending the right signals because I Have no idea how to sit up without my feet being held down. WITH my feet being held down ive also tried to do situps very slowly to actually feel my abs working and I can not do that either. The only way I can do a situp it seems is when I throw my body up as hard as I can. Even when I was at the gym last night I put my feet under 35 pound dumbells to hold them down but a lot of the time while trying to sit up my feet would be pulling the weights off the ground.
Do ANYBODY have explinations or tips that could maybe help me? This is one of the most frustrating things ive ever delt with. I dont feel like im somebody who is overweight of out of shape...
Any advice would be very helpful
