The Ab Mat is the new science of abdominal training! It will actually train your abdominal muscles effectively. If you’ve ever felt you weren’t getting the results you wanted, this may be the missing piece. Exercise mats are rapidly becoming the next must-have piece of fitness equipment.

You want your workouts to be effective. But without a good exercise mat, your workouts will suffer. Without the ab mat you could be shortchanging yourself during abdominal, core, flexibility training, and during many of your isometric workouts.

The AbMat is a one size fits all unique shape that offers comfort, balance, and safety when performing ab exercises. It is also the most effective tool for developing and strengthening the abdominal area! The key is getting a full range of motion at specific angles, and this is acquired with the use of the Ab Mat.

The Ab Mat is scientifically designed with the exact angles needed to give you that extra 35 degrees of range that you do not get lying on the floor or with abdominal equipment. I agree with the saying that “abs are made in the kitchen,” but if your diet is clean this may be the fitness tool to make your washboard abs finally become a reality!

“One of the greatest exercises to work your abs is actually one of the simplest. It’s called a plank and it’s used for building core strength and endurance. I love the plank also because it’s an isometric move which means you don’t do anything but hold the position.

Research has shown how planks are beneficial for your overall health including: stabilizing your spine, prevent lower back pain, and building core strength. Planks are also used in many rehabilitation programs since they’re isometric so if you’re ever hitting plateau’s then exercises like this can help. Having trouble holding yourself up in a push-up position or slouching over while you work? A weak core could be the cause.”

Start incorporating planks into your daily life and you will see fast result in feeling stronger and getting leaner!

DON’T RESIST THE RESISTANCE BANDS!

You hear about them and see people using them in the gym, but are there real benefits to using resistance bands? Everyone from beginners to conditioned athletes can benefit by adding resistance bands to their strength training routines. They can add challenge and variety to any workout program, and they help you look fit and toned for less then 10 bucks!

To consistently see gains from your workouts, and avoid hitting a plateau, it is important that you are always varying your routine! Your body is smart and adaptable, so by doing the same exercise over and over you will no longer be challenged and or see results.

The training possibilities of resistance bands are truly endless. They allow you to move more freely and achieve a greater range of motion, while customizing your workout to your specific goals. For example, when you do a bicep curl using resistance bands, you can make it a harder exercise by standing on the bands and holding a wider stance. Using a heavier band will also give you a more strenuous workout.

With resistance bands, you can say goodbye to boring workouts. With a weight machine you are limited in the muscle groups you work and the direction of the movement. Resistance bands afford you the flexibility of moving in all directions. They can be used to deepen the strength of just about every muscle in the body. You can get creative with resistance bands and use them to both strengthen and stretch your muscles.

All in all, resistance bands offer a wide range of benefits. Few workout tools beat the efficiency of the multitasking resistance band, which take up less space in your bag than an iPod. Plus, it works your muscles at a full range of motion, targeting parts that are often missed by free weights. This is one workout tool I would definitely try to add to your current workout routine!
