I just wanted to let you know the product “Ab Radical” is now available on Amazon.com for under $11.00 and would make a great Christmas or birthday gift or a gift for anyone wanting to isolate their abdominal.
As you know I wrote about this sometime ago and it does work well. It is portable and will fold up to a 4 inch box. It is made of a heavy-duty fabric and has a neck and back support built into it. It was designed to help a person do crunches. One of the good things is when I get finished using it I just hang it on the wall or throw it across my chair for the next morning. I don’t have to worry about storage space, it only takes 4 inches when folded up, there is no storage area of any size to worry about.
This is not a Sit Up exerciser but an Abdominal Crunch Isolator, I do this 4 inch crunch while tightening the abdominal and blowing out the air and then relaxing and taking in air as I go down from the crunch, it is made easy by the two handle made into the product. I just lie on my shoulders, my knees bent at a 45 degree. I then grab the handles near the shoulders and with a slight pull on the handles the shoulders lifts off the floor and the abdominal crunch is made. I don’t use the handle at the ends of the handles I used them near my shoulders, it seem to isolate the abdominal even better. I have my elbows tucked in my sides and not sticking out to nowhere when crunching and that seem to make the Ab isolation even better concentrated.
At one time my wife got me an Ab Roller but I could not do a crunch or sit-up without jerking real hard on the handles, I gave up on that one, it was also bulky to put away. I think my wife gave it to Salvation Army, I have other weight stuff for exercising the abdominal but I just could not get what I wanted.
If this is something you might consider for a gift or personal use ask your Doctor about it if you are an elder person not use to doing exercise or have illnesses, just take time to be safe. I am not a doctor but a mechanic, I would think anyone wanting to do crunches with ease should consider the Ab Radical. My friend Richard is 71 and he used it yesterday and told me it really did make it easy for him to do a crunch, he is 6.4 tall. My wife is going to Japan in Jan for two weeks and she is taking one with her so she can use it when on the air plane.
I do a lot of walking every day as well and don’t drink or smoke cigarettes and think GOD has blessed me with good health.
Thank you and pass it on, GOD bless all,
