With so many different products on the market, it's not easy to cut through all the gimmicks and find the right ab machine. However, there are some machines out there that provide a good ab workout, and the following top 10 list summarises what several sources agree will give you a solid ab session.
An exercise wheel is an old-fashioned and simple machine that is cheap, easy to store and gets results, according to AskMen.com. The downside is that it doesn't exclusively work the abdominal muscles and you need a smooth surface to use it.
SB 550 Bench
This adjustable bench is one of the more expensive options, but it is easy to install, adjustable and folds for easy storage. The bench is best for performing sit-ups.
Super Abs-7" is a device that consists of straps that hang down from a chin-up bar and hold up your knees, allowing you to focus on lifting your body with your abdominal muscles. This product is for people who want to target their lower abs.
The AbEx abdominal exerciser, also called the "ab-roller," helps you maintain good form and allows for easier movement than regular sit-ups. You can store AbEx easily and use it just about anywhere.
You can find an exercise ball in just about any gym, or you can order one for yourself. The ball allows you to maximise your range of motion and work every section of your abs. The ball is also a cheap alternative to expensive exercise machines.
Ab Dolly Plus
The Ab Dolly Plus is a simple machine where you put your arms on the device and use your abs to roll it forward and back and side to side. The machine is small, which makes for easy storage.
The Ab Slide is a piece of equipment intended for fast ab exercises. It is compact and uses a progressive power range to target parts of the abs by increasing tension as you slide forward.
The ProForm Abs machine offers a three-in-one abdominal workout. Unlike many machines, this piece of equipment does not require you to move to another machine or change positions to target all the muscle groups that make up your core.
Ab Lounge Ultra
The Ab Lounge Ultra is a comfortable machine that supports the head, neck and back while you work the abdominal muscles. The machine has padded handles and different hand positions depending on the exercise. It supports up to 113 Kilogram.
Ab Scissor Ultra
The Ab Scissor Ultra is a piece of home exercise equipment that targets both the upper and lower abs and your sides. During the exercises, you sit on a padded seat that moves independently yet is synchronised with the arms and footrest.
