Strange Habits

I was crusing along on my elipital this mornin and i look over.
There is a gentleman with a beer belly doing sit-ups with his feet jammed under the sit-up bench.
(In case you missed my chuckle –
why not use the bench? –
it is 2006,
do exercises the new,
 better for your back
He is straining to get all the way up,
pulling on his head and having his elbows pretty much right by his nose when he gets to the top!
