Before using the Abdominal Machine, watch the video below, and read the instructions on the machine itself.
Do not use this machine to try to reduce your belly fat! You can do abdominals ’til you’re blue in the face, and you won’t lose any fat That’s what cardio and a good diet are for.
However, it will give you stronger abdominals, which will help your posture, and make it easier to perform other exercises with better form. And strengthening your core can also reduce back pain for some people.
Focus on balance between all of your muscle groups. Too much attention on one muscle group will almost always result in problems. The key is to develop balance between all of your muscles to build a strong body and reduce the chance of injury in daily life.
