The Ab Wheel: The Greatest Forgotten Piece of Workout Equipment
Alright, I know the ab wheel is old school. I know it isn’t as sexy looking as those shiny ab crunching machines. And I know it looks weird as hell. But if I was stranded on an island and could only choose 1 piece of equipment to workout my abs, I would definitely take the ab wheel.
Now, I’m sure that many of you have heard of the ab wheel, but sadly most people don’t use it.
Builds a Strong Core and More
Hands Down, the ab wheel is one of my favorite pieces of exercise equipment to use outside of the gym. I started using it back in 2009, and my ab definition and density have increased significantly from doing so.
It definitely beats the hell out of those stupid looking crunching machines you see in today’s gyms.
Typically, I use the ab wheel 3x per week and do 3-4 sets per workout for 12-15 reps, and by the end of the workout, my abs are burning like crazy.
Trust me if you’ve never used the ab wheel before, your abs will be sore for days. In addition to building a strong muscular core, the ab-wheel also works your mid and lower back.
How Does it Work
Now instead of having me trying to pathetically try to explain to you guys how to use the ab-wheel, I’ll let this Youtube guy below show you how.
Notice how simple and effective this movement is, just be sure to brace your abs throughout the entire movement.
So That’s It?
Yeah that’s it. I guarantee that if you crank out a couple of sets of using the ab-wheel, that you’re abs will gain definition and density.
Now I know the ab-wheel doesn’t have any groundbreaking fitness technology. It doesn’t have magical “scientifically proven” technology of the Shake Weight’s dynamic inertia, but it’s pretty damn good.
Anyways, buying an ab-wheel should only cost you $5-10 dollars. Any more than that and you are probably being ripped off.
So what are you waiting for, start rolling guys.
