I was expecting Day 10 to be one of the worst days, but it actually wasn’t so bad for me! Sit-ups aren’t the most torturous exercise you can do, as long as you have someone or something to hold down your feet so you don’t use your hip flexors.

Actually, I might have even done more than 100 because they stopped a lot in the video without me realizing. Cassey and Rosanna are super goofy in this video! If you’re a serious exerciser you might get annoyed, but I thought it was funny, and anyway I was grateful for the breaks.

Since sit-ups are a basic move, I think anyone can try this workout, so I rated it beginner friendly. But 100 reps is a ton, and it takes a loooong time (10 minutes in this video!!) so it’s not an easy workout. Pace yourself, but push yourself!
