If you don’t have a kettlebell, use a dumbbell or a small dog. Sit Ups are a tried and true exercise – gives you core strength and helps stabilize the supportive muscles around your spine when done correctly. If you haven’t done sit ups in a while, just do regular Sit Ups, without holding a weight.

- Come to a fully upright position where you started
