Does not recommend the use of heavy additional complication in the form of pancakes on the rod. Already by itself increased the amplitude of movement (compared to traditional twists on the floor) makes exercise a serious challenge for the abdominal muscles.

But if the chest to attach a heavy pancake, then work "to the fullest" will switch hip flexors and the load will fall to the press. Roman chair designed primarily to hyperextension, where the main motion – flexion of the hip, not waist.
