After doing 100 sit ups, you're lucky to be alive :)

Don't do sit ups the old Army way in which your shoulders and head are on the ground during each sit up. That puts a lot of stress on your back. Instead, do them the way that was described in a Runner's World article many years ago. Here are pictures of me doing them that way.

That page also shows stretches to strengthen your knees and hips. Your hips control the movement of your knee caps.
