At Home Fitness equipment for beginner
I'm looking to get an at home ab workout and was considering getting an abdominal roller (online, likely sportchek or amazon). Can anyone recommend a good @ home ab machine/equipment for a newbie?

Thanks for the advice. I was wondering how much to spend on a ab roller/medicine ball. Amazon has ones for $20 and then pricier stuff for $50. Are there any brands you'd recommend.th12mq wrote: ↑Nov 13th, 2017 10:24 pmYou dont need much if core is what you are trying to train.
Yoga ball, bosu ball, ab roller, pull up bar, medicine ball.
Yoga ball or bosy ball can be used to planks, there are many variations of this exercise. E.g. 2 legs, 1 leg, 1 arm or 2 arms.. play around with it.
Pull up bar can be used for leg raises. Progress from knee to leg raises. Watch your momentum and try not to swing. You can do static holds or progress to leg raises all the way uo but slowly bringing them down.
Ab roller is self explanatory.
Medicine ball you can do ball slams/throws, overhead tosses while in hook lying position or crossovers while in V-sit position.

I do cardio at the gym and then the machine circuit consisting of arms and legs. Its not a full gym, so they don't have ab specific machines, so that is why on my off days, I wanted to throw in some ab exercise.

Have you checked out the work-out DVDs? There may be a difference. If someone made it, they obviously put a lot of thought into it so be more open-minded.

I say this because I checked a number of work-out DVDs last year and there were many different types of work-out. I couldn't try them all because I only have one body.

I was asking which DVDs featuring ab/core workouts you think are good. A thirty minute video about walking isn't about abs.Poppwl wrote: ↑Dec 1st, 2017 10:28 pmThe human body hasn't change that much is not the title.
The favourite one I borrowed from the library was Seven Days, Seven Workouts by Total Body.
Day one was a 30 minutes video about walking.
It featured the following workout enthusiast: Jessica Smith, Janis Saffell, David Snively, lead by 4 others that was not named on the online library catalogue and other work out enthusiast who enjoy working out with them during filming.
The one I mentioned above give viewers a glimpse of a variety of fun ways to work out! Each day features a different instructor.
