Hardest Core Exercise EVER – Part 1
Hardest Core Exercise EVER
I am starting a new series on Diesel to really jack up your core training. It is titled the “Hardest Core Exercise EVER” series. It will contain some of the hardest core training exercises ever created. Most are used with the athletes or bodybuilders I train at Diesel. Needless to say, there are very tough.

Here is the first installment.
But it comes with a warning. This, as the title of the series suggests, is an advanced core exercise. Do not attempt unless you or your athletes have a serious amount of core strength. This is not your average crunch.
Sit-up and Press
The first variation we filmed on Diesel of the Sit-up and Press was done on the floor. This basic version released tension on the eccentric because it was done on the floor. By raising up the athlete onto a GHR or Roman Chair, the athlete never releases tension.
Benefits of Sit-up and Press
- strength endurance of the entire torso
- strength of hip flexors and abdominals (rectus abdominis)
- shoulder and upper back stability
- deceleration of the hip flexors
- mental toughness
Hope you enjoyed the drills, please “like” the video on YouTube.
