I like my thumbs
I know exactly what you're talking about with the low back because they used to bother mine years ago. Dont know why it doesnt anymore? I prefer weight on the chest actually. I did a 25 lb plate on my chest last time i did them. It was more comfortable/ natural feeling. Its really not my favorote ab exercise though, because my hip flexors get hit hard. They burn more than my abs do...
My favorite ab exercise, by far, is weighted ab wheel rollouts. Then leg raises. I really like those. I may try weighted leg raises next deadlift day instead of weighted situps
