I’ve been considering buying one of these AB Rocket Abdominal Trainers since I want to get back into better physical shape. I have seen them advertised on TV and on the Internet and I was wondering if they were worth the money or not. Luckily, a neighbor of mine recently bought one and I tried it out.
What this device does is assist you with doing plain old ordinary sit-ups or abdominal crunches. As a plus, it gives your neck and head support while providing resistance on the way back down for an additional workout. As for the extra conditioning this resistance provides, I’m not sure. I think it can help if you’re out of shape but for someone in good to excellent physical condition the level of resistance may not be that challenging.
As a whole, AB Rocket Abdominal Trainer seemed rather sturdy although it certainly wasn’t as good as much more expensive pro gym grade workout stations. the The massaging rollers are comfortable enough I guess although the lack of adjustability might be a challenge for some. The AB Rocket Abdominal Trainer’s seat does get you in a good position for abdominal crunches and prevents you from ‘cheating’. I think you can get a good workout from this device although I think that someone more advanced might want to consider a tougher inclined Sit Up Board.
I’m still not sure if I want to purchase it though. I got rid of a lot of unused and broken exercise equipment when I moved recently. The questions with any piece of exercise equipment is will it hold up and will you use it? What do you think? Would you use a AB Rocket Abdominal Trainer to the fullest?
