Easily the most effective way to build core strength, the Ab Roller from 66fit is easy to use but difficult to master! Over time, it will train the muscles in your abs and back to work at extension, giving you a strong and stable core. It also works on your arms and shoulders.
Taking Your Ab Roller for a Spin
The simple structure of this gym machine belies its ability to make you sweat! Made up of two easy-glide wheels and thick foam-padded handles, this roller has been made with stability in mind. Wheel wobble is kept to an absolute minimum as you stretch out across the floor, while the handles have been ergonomically designed. This helps to prevent the muscles in your hands becoming strained so that you can focus on the burn in your core. Learning to control those wheels is half the battle. Once you have done that, it is only a matter of time before you can claim to have mastered the Ab Roller.
This particular model comes with a complementary 70mm thick eva foam mat which measures 41cm x 19cm. It is ideal for use underneath your knees and lots of other fitness uses. This aids in its portable nature of this machine, as you can use the Abdominal Roller wherever there is a flat floor, since your knees will be comfortable on the mat. You will also receive an instructional brochure, along with links to help you find videos online.
How to Use Your Core Strengthener
The first thing to note is that this is not an exercise tool for anyone who is pregnant or suffers with hernias or lower back problems.
If you are safe to continue, then you should kneel on your mat with the Ab Roller placed on the floor in front of you. Place your hands on the handles either side of the wheel and push it forward along the floor, being careful to keep your back straight and your core engaged. Push the wheel as far as feels comfortable and then roll back. With repeated use, this distance will become further and further, as your core becomes more stable and capable.
