There is quite a suspicion these days, as to whether ab equipment, or fitness equipment will work on getting you that promised body image. We see tons of commercials and images today, enticing us to buy the workout machine that will give us the body of a god.
Considering our options, either we are suspicious as to how effective the workout machine would be; or buy it – then realize that doesn’t work, and regret the wasted investment. It is a common problem that products advertised to work, end up not working.
Why Ab workout machine don’t work…
Before you buy new home workout equipment, here are some insightful bits so you won’t end up disappointed.
Same movements – When purchasing ab fitness equipment, or workout machines, many of them drill the same repetitious workout movements. Doing only the same motion, up & down, side-to-side, over and over again. Repeating enough will have your body get use to this motion that abs will no longer form.
Tip: Repetitious exercise can work, so long as you are able to increase pressure and challenge your muscles. Similar to weight lifting, it is a repeated exercise, but you are to increase your weights as you progress and build your muscles.
Only exercise one part - When people look to tighten ab muscles, what they don’t realize is that the tummy has a lot of fat covering the abdominal muscle. Unfortunately, single, repetitious movements are not enough to burn the covering fat. To burn stomach fat requires various exercises, which a single static ab machine cannot provide.
Tip: You need variety. Purchasing more ab fitness equipment and workout machine with different movements and levels of intensity.
Why people buy ab machines …
If these exercise workout equipment don’t work, then why do people buy them? There are many answers to that question, but here are a few of the top reasons why:
Reduce chance of injury – Floor exercises like sit-ups, is hard on your back and neck. An ab exercise machine makes things much more comfortable, which is a perk for people who are physically weak and still want to exercise.
Easy to do – That’s how it was advertised, and that’s how it is. Many people who are looking to shape up want to do it the easiest and quickest way – however, the easy way is promising to an extent. Again, the easy usage doesn’t give your body much challenges as you get accustom to the repetition; but it’s great for people who are unable to do a lot.
Convenient – A reason why we buy home workout equipment in the first place. Busy schedules make it hard to find time to visit the gym. If we have workout equipment at home, we may be more inclined to fit it into our schedule. And the machines are cheaper than signing a yearly contract with a gym.Jan 20th by Fit Gizmos
