Do you get sucked in to those informercials?



Honestly this is the dumbest thing I have ever seen as person in the exercise business! Really? Who buys this stuff?! 6 minutes a day?! Who believes that?!

Do I have to say beware of gadgets that work isolated body parts...namely abs, but claim to transform the entire body! That Ab Rocker isn't what morphs the whole body; it's the diet and full-body exercise plan that come with it. Please don't get sucked in watching late night infomercials and believe that you too will look like the fitness models that smile and crunch, roll or rock with just a gadget!

To insure good health: eat lightly, breathe deeply, live moderately, cultivate cheerfulness, and maintain an interest in life.

  1. Most of these abdominal exercise machine support the body in doing the workouts such that we are in a correct posture while exercising. In the myriad of information regarding how to get the perfect stomach, one group of muscles is often forgotten: the transverse abdominal muscles.

  2. Yes I agree, Most of the abdominal exercise machines support the body when used correctly. However, The Transverse Abdominis is not one of them. The primary function of the TA is to compress the abdminal viscera and assist in the expulsion of the contents of various abdmonal organs (as in unination, defecation, vomiting,and parturition). The rectus abdominis, the internal and external obliques and erector spinae are the most targeted abdominals in most exercises for the abs. Also, as I was trying to convey in the post, the abdominals are not made with an informercial piece of equipment, but through a proper diet and full body strength training as well as cardiovascular exercise on a regular basis.
    Thanks for your comment :)
