Sit Up with Octagon Weight

Pick an octagon weight that will give you a challenge and that you can use for four sets of ten repetitions.
Perform a standard sit up. Start lying on the floor, lower back pressed against the floor, holding the octagon weight straight over your head with both arms. Come up for a sit up with your arms straight, the weight straight over your head. Your head, neck and spine should be aligned.

My third book, Pocket Guide to Fitness, is available on and If you look up my name on those Web sites, you will find my other books The Boy in a Wheelchair and Life, Work and Play: Poems and Short Stories. These two books are on my Web site and like, if you so see fit, my book page at
