Sandbag L-Shaped Sit up

Summary

The sandbag is a fantastic tool to use for L-shaped sit up as the load is awkward and shifts within making the stabilizer muscles of the core work that bit harder along with the abdominal muscle group for which the exercise targets.

This exercise also builds great shoulder stability and posture of the upper body.
