“Sit-ups are the best exercise because they include the most lying down”

Sit-ups involve lying down, and this has been used in jokes. “Just got halfway to 1000 sit-ups! OK, FINE, the lying down half” was posted on Twitter on November 21, 2010. “Do the sit ups, you get to spent half your time lying down!” was posted on Twitter on January 29, 2011.

“Sit-ups are the best exercise because they include the most lying down” was posted on Twitter on March 27, 2014, and has been included in two articles about funny exercise tweets.


Wikipedia: Sit-up
The sit-up is an abdominal endurance training exercise commonly performed to strengthen and tone the abdominal muscles. It is similar to a crunch (crunches target the rectus abdominus and also work the external and internal obliques), but sit-ups have a fuller range of motion and condition additional muscles. Sit-ups target the hip flexors, rectus abdominus and also work the iliopsoas, tensor fasciae latae, rectus femoris, sartorius, and, to a very small degree, the obliques.

The only thing I like about sit-ups is that you start by lying down.
