Sit ups utilize a lot of hip flexors. Crunches are easier to keep tension on the abs.
People feel it in the upper abs more w/ this exercise. You'll want an exercise that rotates the pelvis up while trying to keep the torso fixed will be better to feel it in your lower abs more.-

Was more or less doing as many as I could and kind of swinging them out. More or less seeing abs as a necessary evil and basically going through the motions. Not to quote him but I believe he gives a bit of advice on going slow not pulling with your hands on your neck and basically trying to send your nose to the ceiling. Again I'm paraphrasing...and yes that gnome is such a phaggot! On a side note have any of you guys tried making his protein bars that look like poo, they're great!
