When do you stop doing sit ups?

Is it when you feel very sore, or just kind of sore, or not at all? I usually just do 100 situps and it is kind of sore, but it is usually gone the next day. Unless I run, then it comes back and hurts.

Where would I stop?

    The goal should not be to get sore but to improve from one week to the next. If you can do 100 try to do more reps or add a weight like a dumbbell or weight plate to you chest.

    Personally I would do both.

    Week 1 - 100 reps body weight

    week 2 - 100 reps with 5 lbs.

    Week 3 - 120 reps with 5lbs.

    Week 4 - 120 reps with 10 lbs.

    Also mix it up by adding in leg lifts, planks and other ab exercises too.
