    Weights for weighted crunches / sit ups???

    Hi, I hear people talking about 35ib or 45ib weights for sit ups etc, where do you get these / what are these?

    I am probably being stupid, so please forgive the newbie (me) :P

    Take a rope, hook it up to a pulldown stack, and crunch away.

    Dumbell behind the head is what people suggested to me and it seems to be working well, a hell of a lot harder than across the chest which is good. Cant comment on how well it works though since I just started doing it.

    Do them on a decline bench for even more of a challenge. I do mine while holding a dumbell.
