Best exercise for tighter abs. Using it for 4 weeks now and definitely seeing the improvement in my abs. It also works your whole back and arms.
Ease of Install: Very easy & quick. Don't know why other reviewers said it is difficult. Maybe there was some problem years ago. The instructions ask to use some oil on the steel rod before slipping on the handles.
Posture: Make sure you are using it in right posture per the instructions provided on the small paper inside the box. This is very necessary if you want to see an impact. Pay attention to the DOs & DONTs. I wish Valeo had provided these instructions on a bigger size paper & in a more readable text size & font.
Exercise: The key is to stop for a second or two in fully stretched posture in order to work the abs. It might be difficult initially, but you will surely get there in a week or two.
Mythbuster: Using ab-wheel only will not result in a 6 pack or flat abs as seen on the models on the box. You need to do cardio to burn the fat. Ab-wheel will work on the abs internally and make them tight. One health coach told me that your abs become visible when your BMI is less than 8%. I am not there yet, but working on it. Hope you get there soon.
