    Hello. I submitted a video to prove that I broke this record on December 31st, 2019. Here is the video

    Why is it that this website has ignored my submission?

    I don't get get. My video is legit and the sit-ups were done according to the rules. I did 48 in 30 seconds ans 89 in one minute

    With respect, is this website still up? Are they accepting record attempts? I submitted it

    I claim the Florida State Army Reserve and National Guard situp record of 5,274 situps in 5 hours 36 minutes and 35 seconds done on December 13th, 1991.

    Many ways to do sit ups - quite popular is the US Marine Corps style:

  • United States Mike Janko

    Please see my comments below Ma Ann and I truly hope they help clarify why the attempts were done the way they were, how they are most popular today and will draw people to your site.

  • United States Mike Janko

    Please check your comment: *DENIED: Does not follow rule of "must lie flat on floor at bottom of sit-up." Look at what the record holder of 82 did - is their head on the floor. No. Same range of motion down. I belive the range of motion is correct on what was submitted. Please review again. Thanks.

    • Philippines MaAnn P.

      Hi Mike. We'll consider your concerns and have the video reviewed again.

    • United States Mike Janko

      Thanks very much Ma Ann. Please keep in mind that my back touched the floor, fists were clenched on the chest and came up with elbows to touch the thighs on each rep per Marine Corps requirements. There are multiple ways to do sit ups and this is what is the most popular now to avoid injuries and get max value for time spent on conducting them.

    • United States Mike Janko

      Hi Ma Ann - please see below: How to Do Marine Corps Situps Lie flat on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Your buttocks should be flat on the floor close to your heels.

      Cross your arms flat across your chest so your hands grip the inside of your elbows.

      Slowly lift up your upper body toward your knees. Do not move your arms from your chest; they must remain flat against your chest. When your forearms touch your thighs pause briefly.

      Lower your upper body slowly down until your shoulder blades touch the floor to complete one situp.

    • United States Mike Janko

      Hi MaAnn: If you consider what most people actually do to keep their abs in shape, their target for completion of situps is what they can do in 30 to 60 seconds and the US Marine Physical Fitness Test Rules help to get them focused on a common format. That is why I set this as a goal and I do believe it will draw more viewers to your site. I have certainly informed everyone I know on faceBook and linkedIn of this and send them to your site: The starting position is lying on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. The arms are folded across and the chest, and must maintain no gap between the forearms and the chest at all times. A second person is permitted to hold the lower legs or ankles. On the command ‘go,’ start the crunch by raising your upper body forward until the elbows or forearms touch the thighs, and then lower the torso until the shoulder blades touch the ground. This is one complete sit up.

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

  • The Internet Brendan Lee

    I'm not 8 anymore though lol

  • The Internet Brendan Lee

    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.

  • The Internet Tomas Muñoz

    LIER! Matthew do not lie. I was 12 and I did 54 sit up in a school trip. We had different teams and I got chosen to do it. 54 sit ups in a minute. The record right now is 82. SO MUCH! it was made September.

  • Nepal Ram chandra Khanal

    I want to know long and short sit-up have no different or separate events ? Long is harder and it could not done more as short. please reply me . As David had done or karansoda t hease are not same style.

  • India Shalender Yadav

    I beated Your Record.

  • The Internet Debo

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

  • The Internet Cherie Oney

    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.

    • England Richie Howey

      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 :-)

    • United States Alicia Weber

      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.

    • England Richie Howey

      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

    • Mexico Mario Torre

      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

    • Mexico Mario Torre

      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.

    • England Richie Howey

      you are 100% correct Mario :-) congrats on your record.

    • The Internet Gavin

      Riche howey today I set my own personal record for doing 92 sit ups in 60 seconds. I will post a video when I beat that record and I'm in high school.

    this record was beat by Lauren Anderson in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2012. She did 63 in LESS than one minute......check youtube.

  • The Internet Quinn Kelso

    I will beat this tomorrow

  • United States Alicia Weber

    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.

  • The Internet jjmcota123 millar
