According to fitness experts, sit-ups may, in fact, cause back damage. Personal trainers and military advisers in the US now believe that sit-ups are risky because they put too much pressure on the spine. They say that men and women should replace them with the plank pose, which is when you stay in the upward part of a press-up.
A study revealed that sit-ups are responsible for 56% of US soldiers’ fitness injuries. The Army has also already put 10,000 soldiers through a pilot of a revamped physical-fitness test that excluded sit-ups.
