AbMat

Quite simply, the AbMat provides the only way to do an anatomically correct sit-up that safely and effectively gets you the results you want.

By supporting your lumbar spine and eliminating space between your back and the floor, the AbMat increases stability while isolating your abdominals for a total core workout. With the AbMat positioned beneath your spine at the start of a sit-up, you get a full stretch of your abdominal muscles, which is impossible to obtain on a flat surface. As you rise, your pelvis is supported, allowing your muscles to fully contract and resulting in a more thorough and effective workout.

Proudly made in the USA, the antibacterial, single-mold, closed-cell foam construction makes AbMats durable and easy to clean. The textured surface and non-skid base let you confidently pursue your workout goals because the AbMat will stay firmly in place.

No more relying on momentum to do your sit-ups or risking injury from lack of support, the AbMat enables complete range of motion for total core conditioning. Durability meets necessity in this complete core workout tool.

The Ab Mat

The Science

An electromyographical investigation was undertaken to compare the activity of the upper and lower rectus abdominus during the execution of several common abdominal conditioning exercises. Surface EMG recordings were collected at a sampling rate of 100 Hz, amplified and the average root-mean square calculated in 13 active college age subjects.

The average of three trials of each exercise was used for analysis. It was discovered that the nature of the EMG recording for each exercise fell into one of two descriptions, a signal described by continuous, relatively low amplitude activity throughout both concentric and eccentric portions of the exercise. The exercises were therefore compared only with those demonstrating the same characteristic EMG recording. It was found that within the continuous-activation group of exercises, the upper rectus abdominus showed no significant differences between the typical flay-lying crunch (FLC), ab-roller exercise (ROL), Ab Mat� (Mat), and ab-roller combined with Ab Mat� (MROL) exercises. The lower rectus abdominus however showed that the MAT elicited greater activation than the ROL and MROL, and the FLC was greater than the MROL. The full situp (FSU) and the Ab Bench� (BEN) EMG recordings were characterized by higher amplitude, discrete phasic activation. The FSU elicited significantly greater activation in both the upper and lower portions of the rectus abdominus than the BEN. The major finding of this study was that abdominal exercises do not have similar EMG patterns, and therefore consideration should be given as to how to properly compare activities with differing patterns.
