Do sit ups really do anything for you?

By performing sit-ups or "crunches", you are helping to strengthen and firm up the rectus abdominus muscles, more commonly known as the "six-pack". But crunches will do nothing to reduce the amount of fat you have on your tummy.

In this regard, what sit ups work?

It is similar to a crunch (crunches target the rectus abdominus and also work the external and internal obliques), but sit-ups have a fuller range of motion and condition additional muscles.

What muscles do weighted sit ups work?

Muscles Used. As you likely know, sit-ups work your abdominal muscles to a large extent. More specifically, they target your rectus abdominis, internal and external obliques and transversus abdominis.
