The Nordic Track Ab Works is a compact abdominal workout machine with leg resistance. The machine supports the entire back while you complete abdominal exercises. The Ab Works comes with a booklet and a video demonstrating 15 exercises for all levels. The machine is not difficult to assemble with its included instructions. You can prepare it for storage by removing the handles and yoke and then folding down the roller-pad piece so it is out of sight until you are ready to again workout.
