Ab & Core Training
Your core is the foundation of your strength. Strong arms and legs are great, but they don't do much good if your abdominal and lower back can't support your movements. Of course, great ab muscles are also a highly desirable look for both men and women. Instead of doing endless crunches or sit-ups, work your abs with the great ab machines here at Kmart. Our ab workout machines are a great way to firm up your midsection. Follow them up with some time on an inversion tables to relax, and watch as your core gets stronger and stronger.
Strengthen your core with ab machines from Kmart
When it comes to your physique, few things are more desirable than a slim, trim midsection. Crunches and sit-ups can get boring. Change things up by using an ab machine. These training devices are designed to target the muscles of your core, so you'll feel a deep burn while you work out. Ab training machines tend to be small and easy to travel with, so you can use them at the gym, in the living room in front of the TV or at a hotel.
Your midsection can be a tough body part to isolate when working out. Ab benches and boards help to solve this problem by putting your body in a position that stresses your core. Try an ab bench, that will make sure you crunch with good form and can even add resistance. To exercise your lower back, try a hyperextension machine. This allows you to raise and lower your torso with your back muscles; you can even add a heavy medicine ball as you get stronger for more resistance.
Ab rockers and rollers are another type of ab machine. These machines work by giving your abs a different kind of resistance: side-to-side motion. By using your core to twist your body back and forth, you're engaging your abs in an entirely new way. These home workout machines are also great for hitting your obliques. Finally, because you sit in them, you can even work your abs while you watch TV.
For a bare-bones ab workout that's brutally effective, take a look at an ab wheel. These products are very simple: just a wheel with a handle sticking out from each side. To use it, get on your knees with the wheel on front of you. Hold it by the handles. Slowly roll the wheel forward, until your body is parallel with the ground; then roll back up. This might sound easy but it's a difficult workout that can really help you get the ripped abs you're after. Do it in combination with a set of arm weights for an expert-level exercise.
Getting slim and trim doesn't have to take hours a day, and it doesn't have to cost hundreds of dollars.
