By Russian Twists, are you talking about the one with the bar bell in the corner and used like a baseball bat, the one on an exercise ball, the crunch up twist left-center-twist right- crunch down, or the one where you are already up and do the twist left twist right for "X" amount of times? I have talked to a few different people about the "Russian Twist" and three "Exercise/Fitness Trainers" showed me these different exercise routines for the same named exercise. Very similar, but they work things a little differently by being in different positions.
I decided to do a google search and found these same named with at least 4 different styles. The first one listed was at Mens Fitness, and the others were found on YouTube also.
We have a weighted crunch machine at our YMCA, and I really struggle with that machine, and have quit using it all together.
