11 best simulators for abs

The abs play an important role in human life. Not without reason since childhood in educational and training institutions in physical education classes, special exercises are used. Training machines are required for quality workout of all abdominal muscle groups. Many Russians during the pandemic could not attend fitness centers, so they had to install fitness equipment at home. The domestic market offers a wide range of abs trainers. In order to choose the most effective and inexpensive option for training, potential buyers should listen to the advice of our experts.


Types of exercisers.All the trainers for the press can be divided into two groups.

  1. Universal models are in high demand from people who prefer to maintain a good physical shape at home. With such devices you can not only perform exercises for the abs, but also work out the muscles of the arms, back and legs. However, complex equipment is expensive, and in an apartment will take up a lot of space.
  2. Narrowly specialized equipment allows you to focus on the lumbar area. The advantage of such exercisers is the ability to work the maximum number of abs. Many models look compact and cost inexpensive.

Working out a training program.No state-of-the-art machine can remove fat deposits in the abdominal area without a systematic approach to training. The best option would be to contact an experienced fitness trainer, who will develop a set of exercises for a particular trainer. But there are some general tips for beginners.

  1. To effectively burn fat it is necessary to set up the simulator in such a way that a person could perform a large number of repetitions (30-40 times) at the limit of their abilities, and such series should be 3-5. A slight pain in the next day will prompt you which muscle group is under most strain. Until the pain goes away you can train other muscles.
  2. When the user sets the task of pumping up the “cubes”, you will first have to build up muscle mass. Selects a set of exercises with a maximum number of repetitions in the range of 6-12 in 3-5 sets. You should work the same muscle group two or three times a week.

We’ve selected our 11 best abs machines in this review. All of these models are available in sports stores in Russia. When assigning the places the editorial staff of the magazine expertology used the opinion of experts, taking into account the reviews of domestic consumers.
