GO Green Fit: Medicine Ball GHD Sit-Ups

A video posted by GO Green (@g.o.green) on

When it comes to developing your abdominal muscles, sit-ups are a tried and true method. But there are certain variations — some with a medicine ball — that can sculpt your core more effectively. In this Instagram video, Go Green demonstrates medicine ball GHD sit-ups. You can consider it two variations in one, a double dipping of resistance that will exemplify your results.

GHD sit-ups (glute-ham developer) are done using a particular machine and executing concentrated, methodical reps. Being going through the range of motion slowly, you allow each of your abs to take part in the action and reap some of the benefits. This is important, because the main benefit of these sit-ups is their wide extension, and ability to target your lower abdominals. Adding the medicine ball to the GHS sit-ups puts more resistance on your core, taking away your momentum and forcing you to focus on raising and lowering the ball.

What is your preferred way to work on your abs? Do you use the medicine ball in other ways to tone your core? Let us know in the comments below, or by tweeting us @underwearexpert.
