Does anyone have any MOBs to help with most likely, an overworked psoas? Also, tips on how to more effectively perform situps with less hip flexor use would be appreciated. Current job duties require tons of high rep situps and flutter kicks, so new movements aren’t an option.
Someone tell me if I have this right: By being lax on contracting the lower portion of your abs before you sit up, it places your lumbar spine into a little bit of overextension / compression, which causes back pain? So one really needs to focus on minimizes the space between the ground and the lumbar before rising up.

do you mean like this:use supernova and lie down on it.what kind of job requires high rep sit ups and flutter kicks? are you a dancer or performer?i believe that situps generally are not recommended due to bad flexing of their lumbar spine…

Thank you. And some Air Force training pipelines have ~80 rep situp evaluations or random workouts that will include things like 100 4-count flutter kicks, so it’s easy sometimes to lose focus on form.

You can do sit ups with the soles of your feet touching to take out the hip flexor. Sometimes called butterfly situps.
