I’ve mentioned before my serious lack of ability when it comes to sit ups. I am talking full range of motion sit ups. This is not a new thing. I couldn’t do them when I was a kid, a soccer player for 12 years or as an adult in an exercise class.
Monday night I asked my trainer to work with me on learning how to fire the muscles correctly. We tried putting my feet in the kettlebell handle for support. No luck. It only worked with him standing on my feet. Homework - do this on my couch.
Today at early am boot camp I was doing the wimpy sit ups (lifting shoulders only). We tried the bell feet again, Nope. Then he offered his fingers. That worked. Problem is that my internal system was getting a bit backed up and a fluff happened. It was fairly quiet but he probably heard it and smelled it. I just kept going but was internally embarrassed. He left me to my leg lifts.
Then my friend came over. My very fit friend. Her advice was to swing my arms more. She decided to hold my feet. Please No. Luckily my system stayed intact and she wasn’t there long.
I was a bit self conscious about needed all the attention for my sit ups. Seriously why the hell can’t I do them? Practice time.
That’s my embarrassing exercise moment, yours?
