Ab Swing Instructions

Updated November 21, 2016

The Ab Swing is a piece of exercise equipment that allows you to work out your abdominal muscles without doing crunches. The Ab Swing looks like a chair, but it swings back and forth to add resistance to your workout. It can be used to exercise the upper and lower abs as well as the obliques.

Sit down in the chair.

Place your feet on the foot rest, located at the bottom of the chair.

Place both hands on the handles, located on each side of the Ab Swing.

Lean back slightly in the chair, and then bring your knees and chest toward each other. The chair will slide to help you achieve the position.

Straighten your body to release the position.

Repeat this movement 50 times. You may need to work your way up to this amount of repetitions.

Shift your body so that you're resting on your right side, and repeat the above movements. This will work out your obliques. Shift your body to the left side to work out the other set of obliques.
