How do you say "I did 10 situps" in Korean? Is there a specific counter word for exercises/movements? I'd like to say "I did 10 situps," but I'm not sure if a counter is needed after the word "situps".

"I did 10 situps" => (난) 윗몸일으키기(를) 열 번 했어. "sit-up" is called 윗몸일으키기(your upper body(윗몸) is made upright(일으키다)). "I did 10 situps" means "I did a situp 10 times", so the counter is "times". We use the counter 번 or 회 (or sometimes 개) corresponding to "times". 번 is common all around, 회 is a little more formal and not as widely used. 개 is normally for physical things, so it is not right here. But people often use it for anything as it is the most common counter word in Korean.
