The first quarter of every year is the time when all the resolutions to "get healthy" are made. One of the most common desires is to tone and firm the musculature in your body; and which part tends to get the most attention? The abdominal (ab) muscles, likely. With good reason. Not only does a big stomach appear unsightly, but the lack of stomach strength may lead to lower back problems. How to resolve this issue? The ab machine, of course.
This Body Solid Plate-Load Ab Machine will strengthen not only your abs, but also work your lower back muscles to minimize lumbar problems. The basic design of the machine replicates proven single-station workout machines found in your local gym. The ab machine is sturdily built, using high-grade 2 x 4 boxed mainframe tubing throughout, ensuring a durable machine. You have a full range cam adjustment -- with a quick change pin -- to smooth your way through the 26 levels of fitness training. The plate support post is a standard 1" diameter, so most any weights will fit on the machine.
The Original Ab Trainer is still around, and widely used -- the simple design encourages consistent abdominal strength training; the proprietary rocker system safely supports your upper body, neck, and head during your workout, and the contoured head and neck pads cradle you comfortably during lengthy exercises.
Another member of the old guard -- the Ironman Ab Roller Wheel. Still very popular, simple to use, and less expensive than many other ab machines, you have the advantage of toning your arms and shoulders while you build your ab strength. Rubber contoured handles for a good grip on the Roller, and a stable non-tip double wheel make for an easy to operate, conveniently stored, ab machine. Sometimes simple is best.
Ab machines -- for when you want to strengthen your stomach muscles and help to minimize lower back problems.
