Total Gym Elevate Core Adjustable
A totally unique piece of core exercise equipment that strengthens the abdominal muscles, while engaging the entire core musculature. The ELEVATE Core ADJ is the premier choice when it comes to versatile abdominal exercise equipment. Featuring 7 levels of adjustable resistance, the ELEVATE Core ADJ uses two primary movements – the Dynamic Plank and the SCRUNCH. Simple, intuitive and accommodating of all fitness levels, the ELEVATE Core ADJ helps enhance basic core stability for beginners while providing advanced strengthening and a competitive edge for the most seasoned athlete.
ELEVATE Core ADJ targets the core musculature as a whole to enhance abdominal muscle definition while improving overall stability of the trunk.
While most ab exercise equipment concentrates on a crunch movement, requiring users to curl up, the primary function of the abdominals is not to flex the spine, but to work cohesively with the back muscles to maintain erect posture and stabilize the spine.
Merely focusing on the external muscles, known as the "abs," like traditional abs exercise equipment, while neglecting the core musculature can lead to an appearance of abdominal distension and potential injury.
Designed to facilitate a plank, the ELEVATE Core ADJ is built on an incline making it easy to begin at the user’s ability level, and allows the exercise specialist to increase the difficulty by changing their body position or adding movement for increased instability.
Benefits for the individual exerciser:
- The only piece of core exercise equipment designed to safely facilitate a proper plank with various options to increase or decrease difficulty based on a user’s strength and ability.
- Provides dedicated area for planking off of the floor.
- Total core strengthening – recruits abdominals, back, hips, shoulders and abdomen to work in unison for better balance and stability.
- Unlike other abdominal fitness equipment, the Core Trainer engages the entire core in order to stabilize, balance, and support the spine for everyday activities and sports performance.
- Minimizes trunk flexion and potentially dangerous forces applied to the spine.
- A unique ab workout machine that offers two primary movements, each facilitating a plank.
- Exercises can be progressed or regressed to accommodate all fitness levels.
Training applications and biomechanics:
- Closed-chain partial loading of the joints.
- Restricted range of motion.
- Train prime stabilizers & proprioception.
- Full body support, joint friendly, non-compressive.
- Multiple exercises & variations compared to other abs fitness equipment.
- Reliable tool for assessing core body strength.
- Incline design assists in facilitating a plank; rolling glide board provides opportunities to increase core recruitment with dynamic movements for instability.
- Compared to other ab gym equipment, it minimizes force applied to the spine.
The ELEVATE Core ADJ features 7 adjustable levels of incline for a more challenging workout.
While there are several options for ab workout equipment, the ELEVATE Core ADJ is the only machine that targets the entire core for a more functional form of abdominal strengthening.
