Strength through isolation? ABsolutely! By putting you in position to isolate different regions of your abdominal muscles, the Body-Solid GAB300 Semi-Recumbent Ab Bench puts you in the driver's seat for a controlled workout. Perform ab crunches and knee raises, independently or in tandem, as you conduct a comfortable workout from a biometrically correct position.
With the ability to adapt to users' changing fitness needs, the GAB300 delivers an efficient workout for both beginners and advanced users. For beginners, the counterbalance option helps you master the exercise movement. As your abdominal strength builds, you can increase resistance by adding weights for a productive and challenging workout, limited only by your own increasing endurance and strength.
Olympic style plates only. Weight plates optional
The Ab Bench is very compact and easy to assemble.Targets the hard to reach lower abs very well.
The standard olympic clips (used to hold the weights on while exercising) seem to not fit on the olympic bars.
Overall I was impressed with the Ab Bench.
