Subject: Re: Question about ab machine
In reply to: YJewelle 's message, "Question about ab machine" on 10:52:02 04/29/03 Tue

Unfortunately the ab machine mainly targets your upper/middle abs, but I also think that depending on exactly how you use the machine and how you personally are built it depends a little (having several children will tear and stretch those muscles to a point where they will never go back to normal - especially if you've had C sections) Some of the ladies at my club say that by sticking their legs straight out when on the ab machine it helps a little with the lower abs. Try doing what I call leg lifts to target your lower abs:
Lay flat on your back on the floor and try to lift your legs to about a 45 degree angle and hold it for as long as you can. Repeat. I'm sure there are many more (and probably better) ab/crunch excercises out there - good luck!
