The Abmat sit-ups, as the name suggests, is a simple sit-ups variation performed by placing the Abmat (a core-training accessory) under your lower back. The exercise helps in extending the muscles in your lumbar spine and tilting your anterior pelvic region thereby giving your core muscles full elongation and contraction, increasing the strength of your mid-section.
