    One of the hardest parts of this exercise is just finding a place to do it. I had to climb up on the Roman Chair at my gym, and it was pretty wobbly, and painful on my legs! When I did finally get to actually doing the exercise, it was pretty tough. You can really feel it on both your obliques and abs. -1 star for the difficulty of getting into position. Probably would be better with a Glute Ham Raise, but that's not available at my gym.
