Curl Up Assessment Overview

The Curl Up Assesment is test of the strength and endurance of your abdominal muscles.  It is important to be strong in these areas because they help promote good posture and correct pelvic movement.  This assessment was created in an effort to isolate the abdominal muscles without putting a lot of stress on the lower back.  This assemessment is looked at as a more safer and effective test since it does not involve the assisstance of the hip flexor muscles and minimizes compression of the spine, when compared to a full sit up where the individual performing the sit up is held at the feet.
