The latest exercise machine by King Athletic, the Ab Roller, is the ideal tool for improving posture by way of strengthening the abdomen and lower back muscles, the brand says.
King Athletic has recently announced its first Ab Roller, an ab building exercise machine that increases core stability, improves posture and reduces the potential of lower back pain. With essential features like a sturdy metal shaft and comfortable grip handles, the Ab Roller has already become a workout favorite just a few weeks into its release. It offers a complementary targeted workout for the abdomen and lower back that benefits people's other workout regimes and boosts their sports performance.
Ab Roller exercises strengthen back muscles and improve posture. When core muscles are weak, people often experience a non-specific back pain and slouch. This discomfort is not the result of some injury but lack of strength in the muscles that hold up the spine. When the core muscles are strong, the spine is well supported during everyday activities and back pain is reduced. This is because the back and core muscles offer stability and strength when the user moves and performs all kinds of physical tasks.
During an ab rolling exercise, the back and spine are forced to maintain an optimal, straight position. When the surrounding spine muscles are exercised and strengthened, the result is an improved posture during standing, sitting and walking. With a strong core and the back muscles properly trained, one can perform daily tasks that otherwise cause discomfort with ease. During an ab wheel rollout, the user works out the full range of muscles in the abdomen and back area, with the roller elongating the spine and engaging every muscle in the core.
For athletes, King Athletic recommends a complete Ab Roller workout that includes classics such as the kneeling ab exercise and more advanced exercises like the wheel plank, the side wheel plank and the standing ab roll-outs — one of the most challenging core exercises. King Athletic advises beginners to gradually progress into more demanding ab rolling exercises.
A traction tread on both wheels ensures the Ab Roller does not slide during movement, thus enabling the user to have full control of the rollout from beginning to end. The Ab Roller features a dual action wheel system that offers better stability and control during a rollout.
A strong metal shaft forms the base of the Ab Roller, making it a sturdy machine that withstands the user's total body weight without any issue. Its ergonomic design allows users the full range of motion during a workout, which in turn maximizes the results of strengthening and carving one's core.
The Ab Roller — apart from its highly targeted focus on the abdomen muscles and lower back — also helps strengthen one's arms and chest. The Ab Roller is available on Amazon and the King Athletic online store.
