Roman chair | Hyperextension bench
Although the most popular abs exercise is the basic crunch, a roman chair and hyperextension bench can yield better results faster. The reason for this is because equipment is specially designed to isolate the abdominal muscles, so you work one region at a time; upper, lower and sides. Fitness Rush carries captain's chairs, precise crunch machines, and hyperextension bench and roman chairs.
To increase total body strength we must concentrate on the core abdominal muscles. Because 80% of the population has some type of back pain which can be decreased if not eliminated we must perform proper core exercises. Core abdominal exercises for this conversation may be referred to as the stomach or abdominal area, waist, and the back. A simple machine to help strengthen the core is the Body-Solid roman chair and hyperextension bench. This machine also helps you strengthen your hamstrings, and glutes, in complete comfort and safety.
The Body-Solid roman chair can help you not only reduce back pain and increase core strength, your flexibility will also increase with repetitive usage. When you utilize the Body-Solid roman chair in all the positions available your love handles will reduce and your oblique’s will become stronger. The Body-Solid roman chair is also space efficient and easy to use and will provide rewards you have wanted for years.
Performing roman chair exercises with the Body-Solid roman chair is one of the most time efficient and result producing pieces of fitness equipment to achieve great abs, tight obliques and solid back muscles. To tighten and reduce the abs on the Body-Solid roman chair, you adjust the comfortable feet hold downs and slowly crunch forward while sitting on the seat facing the feet hold downs. As you recline backwards you will instantly feel the stretch of the abdominals and assisting stomach muscles resulting in great toned stomach muscles with proper and consistent training.
For reduced mass in the love handles or obliques, simply position yourself sideways on the seat and secure your feet under the pads. Slowly lower yourself in a downward movement then when extended slowly raise your shoulders back to starting position or higher if you can to contract the involved muscles. Repeat this movement for 30 seconds, and in increasing 30 second intervals until you can consistently train for 2 minutes without stopping. To work the lower back you lie prone on the seat secure your feet under the pads and as always slowly lower yourself down to a comfortable position, then raise yourself back up not hyper extending your back as you raise up. Historically we have trained by repetition but to train most effectively train for duration. If you like to count to insure progress this is ok but count the reps you are able to achieve in 30 second intervals. Increase by 30 seconds when you achieve the movement with ease up to 2 minutes per movement. If this program is followed and performed correctly on the Body-Solid roman chair you will feel results almost immediately and your friends will see results as well.

By being creative on the Body-Solid hyperextension bench you can also train the obliques, or love handles. By stretching out fully on the Body-Solid hyperextension in the downward position you will feel a stretch all the way down to your calves.
