I've experienced this and have also had three others tell me the same thing happends with them. I do more PU/SU during an APFT without working specifically on them the weeks leading to it. Actually I had more sit ups on an APFT after not working out for a few years, then I did after working out for three months hard on them. I do have to say once I may have overworked them and even though I took a day off the day before the test I could still feel some soreness in them from a rough couple of weeks of inclines. I have always been under the impression that sit ups can be done daily and you dont need recovery days. Other than getting in better shape for boating season, I just dont see the insentive on doing them. I had 90 sit ups in two minutes without ever doing a thing, and only 77 working hard on them. Maybe I was just at a plateau? I'd like to get to about 105 of them. Anyone able to shed some light on that? My issue isnt being able to get enough of them, I want to add more to mine and I just didnt see it happen by working out. Well by doing sit ups, different variations on the floor and incline as well as using weight.
