So, Why Do People Still Do Sit-ups and Like Exercises?

Low back pain is quite prevalent in our society and still, to this day, I see people doing sit-up exercises in the gym.  Be they old or young or male or female, it doesn’t matter.  For some odd reason, people still like to lock their ankles into a decline bench and then bend their bodies all the way.  Many times, they’ll hold onto a weight for an extra effect…(I have no idea why they do this)….other times, they’ll have someone throw a medicine ball back and forth with them.

So, this begs the question…do these people really know what they are doing?  What muscles do they think they are training?  What muscles are they actually training?  Are the exercises dangerous?  For that matter, are the exercises beneficial in any way?

Topic is open for dicussion…
