I do them in a smith machine (yes, they are good for more than just hanging your towel on). That way you can adjust your height pretty quickly. Put your feet up on a bench to make them harder, or use a physioball and cue the clown music.
Another option is to do them with one arm as in Jeremy Fintch’s (sp?) recent article.
