Cross step sit ups w. a turn is a basketball drill that has many advantages. First, it is helpful in gaining core stability, as the movement involves using the abdominal muscles to lift the torso into the upright position and lay it back down flat on the ground without help from the arms. Additionally, this basketball drill develops balance and power by requiring complete control over body movements while crossing one leg over the other during the sit-ups and turning suddenly at the top of each repetition.
