I just tend to to do as many sit ups as I can each session, in 3 sets, works for me. Some days I will do less to give myself a rest though.

Yesterday it was -
1 x 60 Sit ups
1 x 40 Sit ups
1 x 20 Sit ups

Well i went to my local AFCO and they gave me a PRMC fitness schedule. It is suppose to prepare yourself for the PRMC within 6 weeks but i have to wait a 1 year :P

but in the booklet, they have examples of 3 sets of circuit:

1st = 20 alt knee to elbow
2nd = 25 alt knee to elbow
3rd = 20 alt knee to elbow

but these exercise are within a circuit with other exercises like Press-ups, squats, pull-ups, box jumps, tricep dips, half-sit and lunges so it does take a lot of you :D

Even with this booklet telling you what to do, I always add normal sit-ups at the end of it, just to increase the intensity of the exercise. I would normally do:

1st = 15
2nd = 20
3rd = Max (least 10)

but to be honest, towards the end of the session i'm sweating buckets :P

Good luck with training and everything,

This is what I do and i find it helps alot.

3 sets of:

1.) Press ups..(reps based on ability)
2.) Leg raisers.. (I always keep to 25 reps on these as I see them as an exercise mainly to make the rest of the abb workout harder)
3.) Sit ups..(reps based on ability)
4.) Crunches..(reps based on ability)

In the second set I tend to raise all activities by 5 reps (with the exception of leg raisers) and then in the third do best effort.

Hope this helps.

Are leg raisers the same as flutter kicks?

Leg raisers are on that at 4.20 :)

Remember to keep your head flat on the ground and legs must be straight.

To make them abit harder, I pull my hips up when my legs reach the upper most point. It's hard to explain but you'll know what I mean when you do them.
