Abdominal Exercise Equipment Review
The Ab Lounge is an As Seen on TV Ab Machine from Fitness Quest has been popularized by television infomercials, but should you invest in one?
If you have read my page on ab exercise equipment, then you know that no ab machine can magically get rid of stomach fat.
Spot Reduction is the #1 Ab Exercise Myth.
Good Ab machines can only help to strengthen your ab muscles, and often they are no better than the floor or other ab exercises.
If you like the Ab lounge or do not like it, share your thoughts below.
There are two versions of this ab machine.
Ab Machine #1: The first version has less features. It is slightly less durable and is also smaller in dimension than the XL version.
It says it can hold a person up to 250 pounds.
The original version is also less expensive and goes for around $100.00 depending on where it is purchased.
Ab Machine #2: The newer version is the XL Professional System.
It is heavier, more durable, and has more features. This model claims to support a 275 pound person. All the extra bells and whistles can push the price to almost $300.00-- depending on where you buy it and the special being offered.
The original version may be phased out, leaving only the professional model option.
It is advertised that the secret to working out with the lounge is that it uses the jack knife exercise motion to increase the range of motion of sit ups to get a fuller deeper contraction of the upper and lower abs.
Everyone who has done an ab workout on the lounge or purchased one has a different perspective on the pros and the cons of this ab machine.
If you've this machine, tell others what you think about it.
