A strong core is essential for a flat stomach and a healthy spine. If you want to have attractive abdominal muscles and a stable back, you should buy an ab trainer. With an abdominal trainer you can train important muscles in your upper body at home and turn your abdominal muscles into an attractive six-pack.
Ab Trainers & Back Trainers
Ab trainers are ideal for building up your abdominal muscles. They give you the optimal sequence of movements and protect you from strain. Classic ab trainers are ideal for beginners who cannot yet perform free crunches and sit-ups safely or for advanced users who want to isolate their abdominal muscles optimally. These ab trainers are also called AB rollers.
Together with the back muscles, the abdominal muscles form a kind of corset that protects the spine during every movement. Accordingly, you should always strengthen your back muscles together with exercises for your abdominal muscles. When training with a pure ab trainer, you should therefore complement various back exercises.
With an, on the other hand, you can directly combine different exercises for your abdominal muscles and back muscles in one device and train your entire upper body. With an abdominal and back trainer, look for a wide variety of exercises and different training angles.
Why is a flat stomach important for my health?
A trained core is not only considered attractive by many people, but also has many health benefits. Besides stabilising the spine and preventing back pain, a flat stomach also protects against other diseases such as diabetes, fatty liver and metabolic syndrome. This is because fat on the abdomen, in particular, affects organ function and can alter the release of hormones. From a health perspective, you should therefore prevent the development of belly fat.
Watch your diet
A beautiful and flat stomach is the result of proper training and a healthy diet. It's not only a question of "how much" you eat, but also "what" you eat. Sugar, fast food, crisps and foods with simple carbohydrates and fat make it difficult for you to achieve a washboard stomach. Although there are no specific foods that put more weight on your stomach than others, it is better to eat unprocessed foods with a low calorie density. Whether or not you gain fat overall is always determined by your calorie balance. If you eat more than you consume, you will gain weight in the long run, and vice versa. Where fat is stored is genetically determined and cannot be specifically changed! Men tend to store more fat above their abdominal muscles, while women tend to store more fat in their legs and hips. Regardless of your genetic make-up, a calorie deficit will help you get rid of excess fat and works the same for all genders and body types.
What are the advantages of training with an abdominal trainer?
Exercising with an ab trainer strengthens your core and shapes your muscles. This makes your abdominal muscles more visible. The ab trainer therefore works by building muscle and also increases calorie consumption through exercise. The increased consumption in turn helps you to maintain a negative calorie balance. However, even with the best exercises, you cannot specifically lose belly fat.
However, in combination with a calorie-reduced diet, regular workouts with an abdominal trainer provide visible abdominal muscles. In addition, targeted abdominal strength training also increases muscle tone, which makes the muscles feel and look firmer without already having grown.
Since you bend your spine and rest your head on the pad during abdominal training, you should pay special attention to a good training feeling and high-quality head padding and armrests when buying an abdominal trainer.
