Sit-Ups Vs. Core Stabilization Exercises

Both sit-ups and core exercises focus on particular muscles of the trunk. One of the primary muscles worked is the rectus abdominis, cheap birkenstocks the visible muscle at the front of the body. The rectus abdominis develops into the coveted “six pack” that is often the goal of sit-ups and core exercises. Other muscles include the internal and exeternal obliques, transversus abdominus, diaphragm and pelvic floor muscles. Core exercise also incorporates muscles of the back, including the erector spinae, quadratus lumborum and lumbar multifidus.


Sit-ups focus primarily on development of the rectus abdominis. One of the primary functions of the rectus abdominis is to allow the spine to flex forward and straighten again. Sit-ups repeatedly flex and straighten the spine in order to activate the abdominal muscles, but emphasis is placed almost exclusively on the rectus abdominis, with little or no work demanded of the other abdominal muscles.

The Disadvantages of Cable Machines

According to the American College of Sports Medicine, the limited "form" guidelines provided by most cable machines is one of their most significant disadvantages. As opposed to lever-style resistance training equipment -- nike flyknit on which exercisers can only perform an exercise in one specific manner -- cable machines can be used in an extensive number of ways. While this does provide numerous options to the experienced weight lifter, beginners may not have mastered the form of the exercises they wish to perform. Instead, beginning exercisers may use dangerous technique or complete the exercise incorrectly, possibly resulting in injury.

Weight Level Restrictions

When it comes to lifting weights, a few pounds can make the difference between a challenging exercise, and one that is impossible. While the use of dumbbells allows exercisers to change the difficulty of certain exercises by as little as one pound, this option is not always available on cable machines. In fact, cheap nike flyknit the American Council on Exercise states that most cable machines generally are set up in a way that only allows for weight increases or decreases of 10 pounds. Limiting resistances to 10-pound intervals can be a struggle for those just starting out.

Poor Engagement of Core Muscles

Even when working on the muscles of their upper or lower body, many experienced weight lifters choose exercises that focus on core engagement. While engaging the muscles of the core is often a no-brainer when using dumbbells, barbells or other free weights, the American College of Sports Medicine reports that it can be more difficult with cable machines. Standing on an unstable surface -- such as that provided by a Bosu ball-- can be effective when it comes to engaging core muscles on a cable machine. Rotating the arms of the machine may also produce some improvements in core muscle engagement.

Lack of Safety Support

Unlike traditional lever-style resistance equipment, there is often limited safety support when it comes to the use of cable machines. Lever-style resistance training is set up in a way that significantly limits the risk of injury -- and while there are no "built-in" safety features for more dumbbells, spotters can always provide assistance. Unfortunately, spotting a fellow exerciser on a cable machine can be difficult, as one side of the body will always be blocked by the resistance machine in question. Making smart choices in regards to the amount of weight used and exercise performed is, therefore, nike flyknit uk even more important on this equipment.

Range of Motion Exercises With Pulleys While Seated

Each of these exercises can be performed while seated in a chair. nike sb You can also replicate these exercises on a weighted or resisted pulley system in your gym to add strengthening as well as range of motion, or ROM. Slow movement throughout the range will allow you to safely stretch and increase ROM with a decreased risk for injury, such as muscle or tendon tearing.

Internal and External Rotation
