Abdominal Exercise Machines

What are AB-Exercise Machines?

An abdominal exercise machine, also called AB-roller, AB-curler or sometimes AB-toner, is a type of exercise equipment which is designed to make it easier and more comfortable to do a variety of abdominal exercises, like sit-ups, AB-curls, AB-crunches and leg raises. AB machines typically offer extra support for our neck and back, in order to reduce the risk of injury during workouts.

Do AB-Exercise Machines Help Weight Loss?

Not really. Although an abdominal exercise machine helps to burn calories and thus indirectly assists weight loss, it can't guarantee to produce weight loss unless overall calorie-intake is less than calorie-expenditure. The main function of AB-exercise equipment, like AB-curlers, toners etc., is to strengthen and tighten the abdominal muscles - to help develop "six pack" or "washboard" abs.

AB Exercise Equipment

AB machines improve health and fitness, build muscle tissue, and develop a leaner body shape. They also help to raise metabolism and may also help to develop a flat stomach. To lose fat tissue, and reduce weight, workouts using AB machines need to be combined with a calorie-controlled diet. Because unless you create a calorie deficit, you can't burn fat and therefore lose weight.
