You should be a little stronger than you were a couple of weeks ago and able to complete considerably more situps than your initial test.



  • If you managed 21 – 30 situps in the latest test, follow column 1.
  • If you completed between 31 & 40, column 2 is for you.
  • More than 40 consecutive situps? Excellent! You’ll be following column 3.

If you’re struggling with the program, don’t lose heart. Some people will still be doing less than 21 consecutive situps, but this is ok. Just repeat the week you struggled with until you’re strong enough to move on to the next level – I promise it will be worth your while!
