Ab Lounger

Ab Lounger review

Ab Lounger (also known as Ab Lounge) is a new abdominal exerciser that tones and tightens upper and lower abdominals and obliques. This wonderful ab machine works your abdominal muscles much more effectively than simple sit-ups or crunches.

Unlike crunches, it supports your body, especially your back, neck and head, throughout the exercise. And because you are up off the floor, you have better range of motion, which is the complete opposite of doing crunches on the ground. You have good variety of ab workouts. Ab Lounger also strengthens back muscles and stretches your back. You can also use it to give yourself a good body stretch whenever you are feeling tense or sore.

It's really fun and easy to use the machine. You don't feel like you are working out at all. You can use it every day and you'll see results in two weeks.

The Ab Lounge is one of the premier abdominal exercisers on the market today. Its crunching motion targets both the upper and lower abs, as well as works out your back, legs and shoulders. A simple rule of ab machines is that the bigger the crunch the ab machine provides, the larger the workout that your abs feel. The Ab Lounge does offer a full range of motion, which makes it one of the most effective ab machines available.

You may have heard the term “core” when it comes to your body. The Ab Lounge focuses on your core muscles, which includes your abdominals. Your movement, posture and overall health are dependant on having strong, healthy core muscles. The stronger your core is, the greater your overall strength is. The Ab Lounge is designed to help users of all fitness levels improve their core strength and abdominals too.

Even though the Ab Lounge features the simple jackknife motion that is synonymous with ab crunching exercises, you can perform a variety of workouts on the Ab Lounge which target the whole body. It’s as simple as lying down on one side of the body or another, or extending your arms as you work out. With the Ab Lounge, you can easily enjoy the benefits of a total body workout in one simple, easy to assemble and use machine.

The Ab Lounge is a great machine for anyone of any fitness level to use. The Ab Lounge is great for beginners who are looking to start an exercise program and it’s excellent for advanced users who are seeking to augment their training regimen. Most people, when they begin researching which abdominal machine is best for them, either start with the Ab Lounge or inevitably end up with the Ab Lounge, which is why it is such a popular ab workout machine.

With the Ab Lounge you don't have to bother with annoying floor crunches or risk hurting your neck or back. No more boring floor crunches!

One of happy customers says: "I have always had trouble doing crunches or sit-ups because it always hurt my back to lie on the floor but those days are over with Ab Lounge."

When you're at home and don't feel like going to the gym - use Ab Lounger. Put on some music and the time will fly by. You can exercise while you are watching your favorite TV shows. It will keep you from being a couch potato. It's a great way to make the commercial time go by.

You can buy Ab Lounger online. The item is very easy to assemble. All pieces are numbered and the tools required for assembly are enclosed in the box. Total assembly time is less then twenty minutes.

Ab Lounger is a really great piece of equipment to add to one's home gym. I would recommend it for anyone who hates doing floor crunches and wants to exercise their abs comfortably and effectively. Thanks FitnessQuest for making such an easy to use product.

i was wondering can you fold the ab lounger to fit under the bed after use i have one and would like to put it away once in a while to make room

Beth, it really works. You can find a lot of dissapointing reviews because people think that if they bought an ab lounge and made 100 crunches they should loose weight immediately. This machine does EXACTLY what it says it will do - strengthen your abs. It won't make you skinny, but with the right diet and aerobic conditioning this machine is well worth the money.

Tamalou, you surely can, this machine is rather compact :)

Just had to comment. I used the ab lounge 3yrs ago - good results. (Bought it at Modell's sporting good. 30 days brought it back for a refund) Bought again at beginning of summer, used 1 week (had been hitting the gym 4x a week ardio and weight). Hurt my back so bad I could not go from a sitting to standing position w/o being in extreme pain for at least 3 weeks.

Be very careful!!!

What does actually work great is: ABS OF STEEL I

It only takes 10 min and you can squeeze it in anytime...everyday.

i love my ab lounger..i started a little over a month ago with the ab lounger and i love it, with a bad back it was hard for me to get up and down off the floor, with the ab lounger i can do my crunches and then turn on my side and do side crunches, and if im really stress then just get on it and stretch my whole body.

Jim G  8 years ago

I am 57 yrs old, male, ,had bought a ab lounger several years ago never used it much , just sitting around unused. After seeing my waist and weight gain to an unhealthy state, I visited a doctor...When I first visited the doctor I weigh in at 231 lbs and a 40 waist, in Jan 08, now my weight is 209 and a waist of 35 inches, largely due to the fact of using the Ab Lounger daily, along with eating a healthy diet.. I never felt this good since my teen years.My daily use of the ab lounger consist of 300 for the top and bottom and 100 each from both sides for a total of 500 daily, which takes appro. 20- 25 minutes.. I have set goals for myself here, as I am looking forward to a weight of 190 to 195 lbs and a waist of 34....I will say that it be a pleasure to see the weight come off....never felt this good for years.

Phil 8 years ago

No, the ab lounger will not help any of you lose weight. It's a toning machine. If you want to lose weight, cut your calories down, and increase your cardio exercise. Get some old fashioned running shoes and do some old fashioned running! Also, an eliptical is a good exercise. Sure, it's not fun at first, but it becomes enjoyable after time.

Anyways, back on track of this machine, it is a great machine for toning. Drop the weight, and then sculpt your abdominal muscles. This lounger is great at not straining your back, neck, thighs, etc.

exercisejunkie 8 years ago

I love my ab lounger! You don't have to wait till you've lost weight to start toning. Building muscle raises your metabolism, therefore helping you lose weight. Even if you need to lose weight in the abdominal area you can still use the ab lounger. Just remember if you still have abdominal fat to lose you will not see that actual muscle tone until the layer of fat has been lost. Don't give up just because you don't have a six pack. :) You can't tone the actual fat but once you lose the weight you need to lose you'll start seeing toned muscles. I'm starting to see definition and I've been using mine for only a week. I've also lost 3 pound in 2 days. No I'm not starving myself. I lift weights, do cardio and yoga, and follow weight watchers. It works great for me. Good luck to everyone!

anne 7 years ago

I love my ab lounger and have had it for 2 to 3 yrs. I do 8 different exercises times 50 reps for a total of 10 to 15 minutes at least 4 t0 5 times a week and you will be amazed. You can tighten up in 2 weeks. My problem is the base of my ab lounger right under my knees simply cracked off, just broke in half. I keep the lounger in my room. Should this have happened and so soon?

Penny 7 years ago

I have used the ab lounger off and on for several years. I have weak muscles in my back and hip areas and the lounger repetitions have helped to strengthen those areas. In addition, you'll notice nice toning going on with the Gluteus Maximus muscles and the thighs. I recommend starting off with a low number of repetitions for a few days before increasing the number. If you're straining too much to finish the repetitions..stay with it until its easier. Be sure to breathe correctly.

I usually do some simple warm ups and stretches before doing the repetitions. I enjoy the lounger and vow to stick with it every day! If you slack off...you need to work up to higher count repetitions rather than jump right back into high numbers. Enjoy.

Helen 7 years ago

I am a heavy person close to 165 and wonder if the ab lounger will be able to hold my weight or will I break it? Anyone large been able to use it successfully.

Frank (Ab Lounger pro) 6 years ago

You can get a new Ab lounger or hopefully try to post a wanted ad on Craigslist and hope someone who doesn't use theirs will sell you the back band.

Laura 6 years ago

Just bought my Ab Lounger 5 days ago and have already lost 6 1/2 pounds, and am already SEEING and feeling better muscle tone in not only my abdominal area, but my back, arms, butt, hips and upper legs. I have only been working out on it for about 5 minutes in the morning, and a time or two through out the day, (when I have a minute.) This is a great machine, especially for those with very busy schedules. (I have 2 office jobs, and work very long hours, and have to take care of house and family, and do not have to sacrifice a lot of time to work out every day. Literally only a few minutes at a time.)

The Ab Lounger is also very comfortable to use, and has even helped ease my sciatica. This is a GREAT product! No kidding!

Is this the best exercise and fitness machine? The Ab Lounge Sport – As Seen on TV?

I was talking with my assistant about this machine the other day. She’s all slim and trim, but she has a friend who is constantly drawn by these kinds of weight loss and exercise gismos, so we decided to research this one for you…
