As a Triathlete having solid strength in the core is an essential component to become more efficient in our three sports. Unfortunately with all of the time spent sharpening the skills of swim, bike, and run the abdominal area seems to get neglected. I for one have been guilty of this so-called neglect.
So when the fine people at AmericasNutrition.com contacted me about writing a couple of reviews about some of their Fitness Products this was the perfect opportunity to make it all about the abs ....
I perused the Fitness Product Section of the AmericasNutrition.com website. They offer tons of fitness related products from weight loss, gear, supplements, sexual health (wink,wink)and body building equipment all at extremely low prices. I finally came across The Dual Ab Wheel:
Now this was perfect because I had been considering getting an Ab Wheel after viewing a YouTube clip by some smiley girl named Lyzbeth:
For the last week I have been doing these exercises that my new YouTube friend Lyzbeth recommends and it is taking me about 10 minutes per day. The main reason that I was looking into using an Ab Wheel is because if used correctly, like in the video, then it drastically reduces any chance of hurting your lower back. When I was doing P90X and hammering off Ab Ripper X three times a week my back would become very sore and now with my Triathlon training this soreness prevents me from getting in the best possible swim/bike/run workouts. Not an issue with the Ab Wheel!
They sent me the Dual Ab Wheel and it took about 30 seconds to put together and is as easy as it looks to operate. The best part is that this little sucker only costs $9.99. If you are looking to add in some Ab workouts then you might want to give this a try. After one week of use I am already able to see a difference in definition in my core and more importantly my back feels great.
I'll report back in about a month and hopefully I will not need to access Google Images and just use my own abs for the next pic!
Anyone want to put together an Ab Wheel challenge with before and after pics I am down? Let me know?
