Do Ab Exercise Machines Work

By: Alien

It seems that every time you turn on the TV you see some kind of infomercial for a different ab exercise machine. They all tell you about the same things; you can have perfect abs in only 5 minutes a day, etc. Of course, we sit there and think to ourselves how great that would be because let's face it, we all want those nice tight abs. I dare say that our abs are the biggest area of concern on our body. We look in the mirror and sometimes don't like what is looking back at us. So, is an ab exercise machine right for you?

If you've already got those perfect abs, then this article isn't for you. But, if you have been wanting better looking abs and don't want to do old fashioned sit-ups, then let's take a good look at some of the various ab exercise machines to see if they can really help.

First off, I will say this. Ab exercise machines can, and do, help you get your abs into better shape. There is no doubt about it. There are many reasons for this including:

Less chance of injury - Doing sit-ups is hard on your back and neck. It's very uncomfortable to say the least. An ab exercise machine makes things much more comfortable.

It's easy to do - An ab exercise machine is easy to use and you'll know your form is perfect every time. With old fashioned sit-ups, unless you're doing them perfectly, you won't get the full benefits. Who wants to go through the hard work of doing sit-ups and then not get the benefits?

It's convenient - Let's face it, making time to hit the gym is difficult at best. An ab exercise machine makes working out much easier and on your schedule.

Fast results - The ab exercise machines are designed to provide maximum results with less work. Instead of doing 15 minutes worth of sit-ups, you can get the same results with 5 minutes on an ab exercise machine. Which would you rather do?
