Assisted Sit-Ups

At Therapyroom1 we know that many patients of ours struggle with core exercises, whether because of low back pain or general abdominal muscle weakness, so we invented a way to help

Your core is a complex series of muscles, extending far beyond our abs, they include everything besides your arms and legs and are incorporated in almost every human movement. The core muscles:

  1. can act as an isometric or dynamic stabilizer for movement
  2. transfer force from one extremity to another
  3. initiate movement itself

Level – Intermediate/ late stage

Equipment – Black or blue resistance band tubing, mat


  • Tie the resistance tubing around a supported pole
  • Lie down on the floor or mat, on your back
  • Bend your knees slightly and lift your upper body upwards pulling on the tubing
  • Keep your head up
  • Lay back down and repeat

Note:// Although these exercises are designed to help you help yourself, we urge caution in all rehabilitation that you do not over do the exercises. If you feel pain, please then call 01522 511834 and make an appointment and see one of our highly trained practitioners. Remember we have not examined you!
