So I was doing some decline situps on my cheap weider situp board. I'm pumping out reps with 60lb of plates in my arms, and notice the slant board feels bouncier than usual. Just as I'm almost finished my set on my 7th upward movement, I feel a sense of weightlessness followed by a loud thud. The thing collapses in on itself. Apparently the two bolts holding it together ripped apart the steel tubing. I think my $2 knife set uses stronger steel. Good thing it broke early because if i was using a little more weight I might not be able to hang on and the plates would have made a dash for the family jewels. Weird thing is, I've done 130lb on that board without problems before. I've only had it for a year too.
