Dumbbell Sit-up and Dumbbell Crunch
On Daily Spot, you’ll see sit-ups, crunches, v-ups, you name it used in a variety of ways. Perhaps a trainer’s routine includes ‘4 sets of 20 reps’ of v-ups. Maybe that day they want to do ‘as many reps as you can in a minute’. Including a dumbbell offers a great way to turn a workout from an endurance exercise into a strength exercise. The first to mention is the crunch. Instead of having to do 100 crunches before your abs start to tire, lay a dumbbell across your chest. This should become challenging after fewer reps.
