    don't you have to reach your knees when you are coming up?

    After looking at both Kimberly and Alicia's records several times I feel that Kimberly does not seem to do full reps on her sit-ups - she doesn't appear to come up high enough on some reps and on those her back doesn't look perpendicular as the rules require. So I think it is reasonable to question if Kimberly's reps are full reps. Would other fitness record holders familiar with sit-ups like to give their comments as to if all her reps are full sit-ups?

      I agree with you Cherie. Kimberly's situps are not full reps and she did not follow the rules as she is to start a situp with the bottom flat on the floor and then take her back perpendicular at the apex of the situp. She failed at doing both rules. These are just "pulses" or half reps. This should not count as a record as she did not follow the rules.

    63 in 2 minute is not much. In 1979 did 80 in 1 min and 123 in 2 min. Keep at it

    If the bent elbow that is held parralel to ground (which is bent from hands held above ear level on side of head) crosses the knee at top of situp, then you have met perpendicular apex. All reps were performed where bent elbow crossed knee at top of situp.

      Does it matter if your arms are on your head or across your shoulders?
