My sit-up benchSit-ups are ideally done on an incline bench, also called an abdominal bench, so that the abs work harder than when you lay flat. Rather than spend a bunch of money on a heavy metal bench, I simply made my own.
MaterialsSeeking to make a stable bench, I opted for using 2x8 planks, which are actually 7.25" wide by 1.5" thick. I bought an 8-footer and got it cut into two 4' pieces at the store for free.
