Nothing but a healthy diet and a training schedule of aerobicexercise and weight lifting will result in you getting rid of that excess fat.
With the system of knowledge available to you in my
free flat stomach guide
you will be well on your way to reaching your goals.
But read on to find out why some ab exercise machines are better than others and which ones will help you in your quest to get rid of that flabby stomach.
Do you Really Need that Piece of Equipment?
Ab exercise machines are designed to specifically work out the abdominals area of the body.
The abdominals consists of four main groups of muscles known as the Rectus Abdominis, the Internal Obliques, the External Obliques and the Transverse Abdominis.
Ab Machines will work out these muscle groups so that you end up with those defined abs and a toned stomach.
They also help to get rid of those ‘love handles’ that so many of us have.
But this will only happen with the right nutrition! No Shortcuts!
Why Do Most Ab Exercise Machines Fail to Help Me?
The reason that most ab exercise machines fail to help anyone who is serious about losing the belly fat and getting those ripped abs is because they are all gimmicks.
The fitness and health industry is one of the wealthiest and largest in the world and turns over millions of pounds from fitness products every year.
If you look carefully at any of the products available you will see that very few of them have any scientific backing to say that they really are effective at helping you lose that stomach fat and get those muscles.
This is because they are just a gimmick and are designed with the sole purpose of conning you out of your hard earned cash.As an example, let’s take an abdominal belt.
An abs belt states that it sends electrical pulses to the abdominal area, making the muscles contract so that your stomach will become toned and flat.
Having used an abs belt I can safely say that the electrical pulses are very weak and after two weeks of using it my stomach was no flatter than it had been at the start.
Many people are conned by the wonderful testimonials that are found on the manufacturer’s sales page.
Surely if so many of these customers have tried it and been pleased with the results then it must work, right?
Wrong! Testimonials should be taken with a large pinch of salt and you should always follow your gut feeling.
Remember the saying ‘If it seems to good to be true then it probably is?’
Well this saying certainly applies to the majority of ab exercise machines.
Choosing The Right Equipment
There are plenty of exercises that use little or no equipment at all that are very effective at working out this area of the body and so you don’t really need a lot of equipment in the first place.
If you do want to use ab exercise machines to help you when working out, the ones that are worth the money (and do actually help you) are stability balls, kettle bells, medicine balls, chin up bars, rowing machines and a vertical knee raise machine (a staple piece of equipment found in gyms and fitness centres).
This list comprises of the best ab exercise machines that you can use and that will be very effective when you are doing your abdominal workouts.
There may be others that you want to try such as an ab trainer which helps you to do crunches.
In my opinion, these may help you to start off if you are overweight or have not exercised for a long time – but it iseasier (and cheaper) just to do a plain old crunch with sheer grit and determination.
