    proper weighted sit ups..

    ok so i know you need to hold the plate on your chest...but i have a short torso and am using a 45lbs plate for this exercise and since my torso is short the plate is basically the length of my torso so i cant to proper sit ups.

    my solution was to place to plate on my forearms kinda like a backwards grip so the plate is off my chest and do them that way. i feel the "burn" but is this okay or are there other ways?

    There are a few other ways:

    a) use a dumbell

    b) plae the weight behind yourb head and prepare for a kick in the ass - it is a LOT harder.

    Another thing you can do is hold a plate or barbell at arms length and raise it up toward the ceiling (you can have your training partner hold his hand as a target) by crunching.
