i do sit ups alot...... try crunches, kinda the same thing but yeah, change from the old style sit ups.
also, just lay on the floor face up, and just lift your legs up keeping them straight till just over 45 degrees then pull your knees towards your chest, straighten out, slowly lower the legs and repeat.
heres the results for me -

6 Inches - 30 secs.
Torso Twists - 30 secs.
Feet Up, Arms Out - 30 secs.
Alternating Knee Ins and Bicycle - 30 secs.
Elbows and Toes - 30 secs.
Elbows and Toes (sides) - 30 secs. each
V-Ups - 30 secs.

Go through 3 sets...

This is a great core workout... Hope this explains it well enough...

Explanation of each...
6 inches - lay on your back, arm out to the side and raise your feet off the ground 6 inches...
Torso Twists - Sit on the floor with only your butt touching the ground. Clasp your hands in front of you and twist to the sides using your abdomen...
Feet Up, Arms Out - Same position as the torso twist but with your arms out, hold this position...
Alternating Knee Ins and Bicycle - Same position as torso twist, do 10 secs pulling your knees into your chest then 10 secs doing a bicycle motion, then 10 more secs. knee ins...
Elbows and Toes - Face to the floor, hold your body up with only your elbow under you and your toes on the ground... Keep your head up and butt down...
Elbows and Toes (sides) - One elbow on the ground, opposite hand on your hip and side of your foot on the ground...
V-Ups - Flat on your back raise your straight legs and your straight arms in on motion towards each other...

I have the same problem... my back gets real sore without a good matt, and sometimes even then. Some other excercises to try are dragon flags, hanging leg lifts and kneeling cable pulls... I'm not sure about the name of the last one but you kneel facing away from the stack and bring your head down to the ground, holding the handle behind your head. If you go to a gym they'll usually have machines you can use... if nothing else the crunch machines can be done without the back pain.

Drink lots of water... for a month... do your core workouts religously everyday... last week of the month cut back on the water to normal or a lil less than what you usuallly do... then you will see the results... Thats how I got mine and lost weight. 1

if you have a pull up bar, you can hang off that with your legs and do sit ups. its the same and just as boring, but it saves your back at least
