Agreed. As an adult my weight has ranged from 160-190#, and I'm 5'10". The feeling of floating the last half of the sit-up is a lot easier when I've been lighter. It's hard to do that with the extra weight on, especially when it is belly weight. Belly weight makes it feel like you're going uphill when doing sit-ups.
