I am trying to correct my anterior pelvic tilt and started doing Turkish get-ups, for overall core strength/conditioning, which I love and am smashing.
I decided that I would try Janda sit-ups tonight too and placed my feet on top of the kettlebell rack pulled back and down to activate my hamstrings and glutes to take the hip flexors out of the equation and… holy shit they are difficult. My feet kept raising and coming off the rack i.e. my abs are clearly so weak they were trying to get me to get my hip flexors involved again so they didn’t have to do as much work. So, I put a medicine ball on my feet to keep them pinned down and then tried again. It was very difficult. I managed 2 sets of 5 and tried for a 3rd set of 5 but couldn’t finish (I think I got two).
What can I do to build up to this? I will keep doing them, obviously, but I also want to do other exercises to strengthen those same muscles. Does anybody have any advice/suggestions?
Thanks in advance
