Sit up

Lie on your back on the floor, feet slightly apart, hands at your side. Lift your upper body, bending at the waist, until you're sitting up vertically. Keep your arms at your sides and your feet on the floor--avoid the temptation to ``cheat'' by pulling yourself up with your arms or levering yourself up by raising your legs. Smoothly lower your body back to the floor. Repeat the specified number of times.
