    It is necessary to establish standers of sit-up exercise for the whole world.

    Actually I got 88 sit ups in one minute in abesville elementary in Missouri back in the 90's. I find this offensive that nobody recognizes it.

    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?

    • United States Alicia Weber

      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.

      Hi Alicia, after you wrote this comment a year later you then break the record using the exact from you disagree with. Do you think that your world record is a fair ?

      If i was to do the form you have chosen I'd probably get 90+ however I don't want to sit at the top of the records as no.1 knowing fine well it's not a full sit up.

      I'm training non stop and I plan to beat your what I'd call not full reps with full reps as my previous video shows. I look forward to the challenge and I'm pretty confident as I held back on my previous attempt by a couple. I just wanted to know your thoughts on this? I'd just like to say there is no bad feelings towards you and I have nothing but respect for you and all the records you hold :-)

      Hi Richie, I have followed the rules by touching my lower back to ground and coming to an apex at the top...the same form you used to get 71 reps. This is called COMPETITION. There is a lot of it here. You better learn how to compete and keep good sportsmanship or YOU will not survive. Just a reminder, I set over 400 world records in physical fitness and sports between 2 world record books. I compete everyday as I compete in 17 sports and I have been a world and national champion in two of the 17 sports. If you want to whine over getting beat by 1 rep, then you better hide in a closet and get off Recordsetter.

      Lol, how rude. Lost all respect for you. I run a fitness camp. I'm going to actively train each one of my members to break all your records :-) it will be fun. And hopefully at te same time teach you some manners. P.s for the record I got 92 reps doing it your way :-D

      If you can do it, just do it. It will be a pleasure for me that someone could compete and beat me. It will teach me that i have to train better and harder, thank you

      I am partially agree with you. Those are not full sit-ups, but neither Alicia nor you and me made correctly and full sit ups. Only Guy King and David Bengiashvili made proper and full sit-ups. I want to be honest. That is the reason I decided to break that record, to prove that, if that is the criteria, so many records will be broken, and I am in that way, to breake all the cheating records Or fake records. If you say you can do more, do it to prove that all this is fake. It will be one day that the judges will stop it and they will have to back to the basics and really follow strict rules. Then the competition will be really interesting and it will be a honor for me to compete with you. Have a good day Richie.

    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.
