-- CORE MUSCLES WORKED WITH AN AB WHEEL:
Shoulders, arms, upper and lower back, abs (all sections)
-- WHAT TO EXPECT ON QUALITY:
The quality on these things doesn't have to be fancy - it has a simple use and just has to be functional. Two wheels are better than one, however. The wheels are solid plastic/rubber and the grips are similar. Are the grips terribly comfortable? No, but they're not bad either and you aren't using it for hours at a time -just minutes. Wrap some tennis racquet grip around them for added comfort if you want more, but it's really not needed. This is a basic tool and doesn't need to be made of expensive materials. The bar through the middle is solid metal (not sure if there is a weight limit but I'd guess at about 200lbs).
-- PUTTING IT TOGETHER:
It arrives in a box as two separate wheels, a metal bar, two rubber handles and a single sheet of instructions. Place the bar through the wheels and center them as best as you can. Then slide/wiggle/twist one handle all the way onto one end of the bar (I didn't need grease - it went on pretty easily, yet snug). Then try to line up the grip of the other handle and slide that onto the other side of the bar with the wheels in the middle. Push on the ends of the handles to make sure they're on all the way. You will be able to twist the grips a little to line them up perfectly. Putting it together took me only a couple of minutes.Read more ›
Be sure to use something (maybe gloves or stick something on the grips) to make them more comfortable. This helped me so much after the first week, and I couldn’t believe the difference.
Watch the videos! Go on YouTube and you will find videos that will instruct you on how to use it. Just because it’s a simple machine doesn’t mean you won’t injure yourself if you use it improperly.
Keep your posture intact, and your breathing regular. I think that this tool is most effective when you have a very straight back, as it forces you to contract from your diaphragm and it will be most effective with deep inhales and rewarding exhales.
Cool down after! After I finish using this machine, I totally do a series of cool down exercises (this one is my favorite: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ar3BGF8do7I) and then I use my favorite pain reliever roll on, ThermaChill Pain Relief Roll On Cold Therapy, 3 fl oz. - Top Choice for Arthritis, Migraine Relief, Joint & Muscle Pain - Limited Time Offer: Buy 1 Get 1 Free!, to warm and then cool the areas that are going to be sore. This makes me feel great because I can usually tell just a few minutes after which areas are going to be sore the next morning.
This machine is absolutely great, and extremely useful if you want to work out your body. I love that you can find really useful and quality workout products at great prices, and you don’t need to spend an arm and a leg on fitness. It’s completely accessible for everyone!
I've been eating well and exercising (light weights, a couple sets of pull-ups/chin-ups and resistance cables) five to ten minutes a day--along with 1-1.5 hours of cardio once or twice a week--but wanted a little more strength and definition in my core. I started doing sit-ups once or twice a day--50-100 at a time--which felt pretty good but I was worried about not working all of my abs equally. I was also curious as to other methods because my back or shoulders seem to click when I do full sit-ups. Additionally, it was hard to anchor myself unless I put my feet under the bottom edge of the couch, which involved putting shoes on due to the sharp wooden frame. All in all, it was a bit of a production just to do some sit-ups.
I found the Valeo Ab Wheel on Amazon and ordered it based on the other reviews, and the fact that it seemed such a simple solution compared to my sit-up/crunches ritual. It is a pleasure to use, but make SURE that you read the instructions on proper use so that you do not hurt your back. Keep it STRAIGHT through the whole repetition. I recommend using the Ab Wheel on carpet for the added friction--it helps you control how far you extend yourself and prevent self-injury--but it will operate smoothly on a solid floor. I keep the wheel right next to my bed so that one of the first things I do when I get up (other than kill the alarm) is to do a set. I start my coffee, have a banana, and then do another set when I come back into the bedroom to get my clothes before showering. If I'm feeling particularly adventurous that day, I'll do a third set of 15 in the evening before dinner.Read more ›
