WHAT IS THE AB WHEEL?
The AB Wheel is an inexpensive and compact home fitness
product to strengthen and tone your abs. Simply, it’s a just a wheel with a
handle through it and grips on both sides. However, you will be able to perform
both simple and complicated movements on the Wheel to build strength in your
abs and back, resulting in a solid core.
An AB Wheel works the core muscles in your lower torso,
including the rectus abdominis in the stomach area, your hip flexors and the
latissimus dorsi, which extend across your back from the pelvis to the
shoulder. You can also use the AB Wheel to work not only your entire core, but
secondary muscles such as your shoulders, hamstrings, arms and chest.
The Twin AB Wheel Rollers are aimed at more advanced AB
rollers as it takes your ab, core and upper body workout to the next level
whilst improving flexibility and coordination. The advanced braking system on
each wheel allows you to work independently to perform rolling push-ups, iron
crosses, rollouts, stair climbs, abdominal and core extensions. By simply
twisting the handle you can apply the brake and continue using one arm if you
wish, or control the amount of extension that you require.
You can perform rolling push-ups, rolling iron cross, core
extensions and rotational push-ups. They are more versatile than a single Ab
Roller Wheel, however they are more demanding and it takes more control.
HOW IT WORKS:
Take your planks, pushups and pillar exercises to a new
level with the Twin Wheels AB Roller. Unlike the Single or Dual AB Wheel
Roller, these independent rolling wheels on each side destabilize your
movements, causing your shoulders, torso and hips to work harder than ever
The stability pushup strengthens and tones biceps, triceps
and shoulders. This move can be done on the knees or on the feet using one
wheel to start, or two for extra challenge. Workouts can accommodate virtually
any level of fitness and provide functional strength while working the muscles
The rollout, with the Twin Wheels AB Roller will prove more
challenging than performed with the Single or Dual Wheel AB Rollers. Kneel with
the wheels at your knees and roll it forward with your hands as far as you can
— preferably until your chest touches the floor — then roll it back to your
knees. The results are immediate as you can feel the stretch in your abdomen
and the reverbations in your arms.
Experienced exercisers with very strong abdominal and back
muscles can do full rollouts. Start in a standing position with the Wheels at
your feet, roll it forward until your body is parallel to the floor, and then
roll it back to the starting position.
