The benefits of an abs exerciser
Abs exercisers work the core muscles: upper and lower abs and obliques. The benefits are many: tone your core, sculpt your body and maintain and strengthen your lower back.
Choosing the right abs exerciser
You should ask yourself two questions: Do you want to work in a static or dynamic position? What is your intensity level? Dynamic work (raising the torso) aims to work your superficial ab muscles while static work (core work) tones the deep muscles that support your organs and protect your lower back. The Abs 220 is perfect for a regular dynamic workout. It comes with a mat and padded headrest.
The right position
Remember to contract your abs and to support your neck, lower back and core while doing your exercises. Don't overemphasise the range of your movements: it's better to keep your range of movement small but controlled. Maintain a smaller angle to the floor and tighten your abs (watch our videos). If you have back trouble, take it slow and easy.
