Fat Burning, Weight Loss, Diet and Fitness Question of the Week

Every week I answer a question or questions that are sent in to me regarding fat burning, weight loss, diet, fitness and  or the Fat X program. Today's question was a e-mailed to me and it was regarding sit ups.

Hey,
Love the work your doing on your website.
Just wondering if you can answer a question I have. I searched the net and can't find answers.
What do you put your feet under when you’re doing sit ups? I stick mine under a chest of drawers but find I’m using my legs too much and I’m getting cramping in my thigh (not sure if that’s because my feet are under a chest of drawers lol)
Cheers a lot,
Will

I’m not exactly sure why you’re doing sit ups. There are better exercises to isolate the abs, and if you’re doing it as a full body workout or movement, there are better exercises for that. If you need a good abs exercise I would recommend the spin crunch. It’s demonstrated towards the end of workout 3 of the Fat X program. If you’re looking for a full body workout or movement that targets the abs, I would recommend the Turkish get up. It’s demonstrated in workout 1 of the Fat X program.

The cramping issue can be caused by a lack of flexibility or a deficiency in your nutrition. Make sure that your are getting in a decent amount of stretching. I use a multivitamin to patch up any holes there might be in my diet or nutrition program.
