Build Core Strength and Limit Back Pain with the Ab Coaster
Athletes know how important it is to have a strong core, and building core strength is one of the main components of their overall training program. Without a strong core, other muscles of the body have to work overtime (and not in their intended fashion) to compensate for weakness around the middle. This causes unnecessary stress and strain to joints and muscles and often leads to injury. The new solution for building core strength is the revolutionary Ab Coaster®.
The Secrets of Gymnasts
For decades, professional gymnasts have known the secret to outperforming the competition—building the lower abdominals. The lower abs are the key to core strength for performing athletic gymnastic movements such as long leg extensions on the rings and reverse leg lifts on the sawhorse. Success is dictated by the strength of the gymnast’s lower abs and his/her ability to lift the lower body from the “bottom up.”

The Ab Coaster Works from the “Bottom Up”
Unlike traditional crunches and sit-ups that work your abs from the “top down,” the Ab Coaster’s natural arc motion was designed to target the all important and hard-to-reach lower abs. This is done through a smooth glide path that begins as you raise your knees upward to begin the exercise cycle. This targeted movement brings your lower abdominals into play unlike any other machine or exercise.
Every Athlete Can Benefit from Core Training
The great benefits obtained by using the Ab Coaster are not limited to gymnasts. Professional athletes of every sport, even celebrities and fitness models, are turning to the Ab Coaster for building core strength and obtaining superior results. The Pittsburgh Steelers use the Ab Coaster as part of their conditioning program and the players love the way it provides a complete abdominal workout quickly and effectively.
A Complete Abdominal Workout
The adjustable kneepad on the Ab Coaster also helps work the obliques or “love handles” (via a side to side motion), for a complete core workout. For advanced users, there are also posts to add Olympic weights for an intensive resistance workout. But the great benefits don’t stop there. The Ab Coaster’s ingenious design limits stress to your neck, back and shoulders through the use of adjustable handles. All the work is done with the core muscles as you move up and down the machine’s super smooth stainless steel curved track.
