This kind of fitness equipment is designed to target abs and core muscles to help you attain your goals. They are scientifically designed to target specific muscles, providing a more effective workout and yield faster results.

The ab wheel is one of the more common and simple machines for abdominal workouts. It is basically a wheel with a stick through it, which is used as the handle bar. Most common variations of ab wheel exercises are the front roll outs and leg roll ins. Front roll outs are the most popular way of using the ab wheel, where you hold both sides of the wheel, roll the wheel forward, lower your body as far as you can without arching your back, and then use your abs to pull back to the starting position. The leg roll in is where your feet is place securely on both sides of the wheel, then lift your hips in the air as high as you can, then return to the starting position.
