I've seen intelligent discussions showing that nearly all exercises are in some way injurious and should be approached with caution. I certainly don't want to just offhandedly dismiss everything, but I think the key will always revert back to common sense.

As long as you're not doing 500 a day then give them a run. I use weighted bench sit ups. I like them.

I have found a little bit of core strengthening goes a long way, so I would recommend quality work over quantity work.
