Sit up rules


Sit up rules

To count the hands must touch the ears and the back must touch the ground at the end of the downward phase of the sit up.

There is no need for the back of the head to touch the ground.

The elbows do however have to go back as far as possible to the floor.

The elbows must touch the knees at the top of the sit up. This can be anywhere at the top of the knees – even to the side of the knees at the top but they both must touch.

The competitor can stop and rest and continue later on but all sit ups need to be done before being able to continue.
