Abdominal exercise equipment
Are many in number and range from simple inflatable balls to complicated structures with springs hinges and hydrological resistance mechanisms. The Abdominal Exercise equipment industry also recognizes the the motivation for many people to exercise is to reduce a growing layer of fat around the mid-section, so an obvious choice for any one looking to lose weight in this area would choose a device to directly target this area.
Although this strategy seems to be logical, the effectiveness of an abdominal exercise device on the abdominal area is much less than one would think, in fact the effects of abdominal exercises are far less than that of walking, jogging or cycling for a similar level of perceived effort. The fact that most abdominal exercise devices use a muscle isolation form. You get a greater feeling of a good workout. Due to the lactic acid build up during exercise, causing discomfort which is normal and associated with vigorous exercise. Thus giving a perceived level of exercise which has actually not depleted the normal level of blood sugar in the bodies energy system. Which also has not stimulated the bodies energy system to break down stored fat into usable energy.
Many people also use fitness product purchases as a means of motivation for a healthy lifestyle. I think every one at some point in there life has bought something as a means of motivation. Supporting a lifestyle change, when in actual fact these changes are usually short lived and have very little effect. My advice would be to change your lifestyle then buy devices or gadgets to re-enforce the changes.
