Hello guys! This is my second post in the forum, and I have a question about Atlas Sit Ups: What are the Pros and Cons of doing them while holding something between your feet.

Thanks!

hello jongabd,

The idea behind holding a book or something similar between the feet is to create a level of Isometric Tension while keeping the feet down. Nothing wrong with that. But it's even better to be able to maintain the Isometric contraction without relying on anything.
