Valor Fitness Ab Mat – When performing standard crunch exercises on the floor, do you experience pain, discomfort, or just don’t feel like you are using proper form to effectively isolate the abdominal muscles? With the Valor Ab Mat, you can now safely perform a variety of exercises to isolate the upper abs, lower abs, obliques, and lower back muscles. The contoured design of the ab cushion conforms to your lower back to provide support for your spine and to help prevent injury while complimenting the full range of motion necessary to work the entire abdominal muscle group and core chain of muscles. The Ab Mat will fit exercisers of all different height and weights, so it becomes a simple yet effective “universal” training tool at home or at the gym for core training and crossfit. And, the Valor Ab Mat is available at a fraction of the cost of other name-brand core cushions.
Unlike exercise balls which require more balance and can wobble or roll around on you, the Ab Mat abdominal pad is much more stable and stationary during exercise. The underside of the Valor Ab Mat has a textured mesh pattern for a more secure “grip” to help prevent slipping on floor surfaces such as carpet, concrete, foam fitness mats, and rubber gym flooring. Since you won’t have to worry about keeping yourself steady from moving around on the floor while performing crunches, you can direct mental focus where it should be…on your ab workout.
Why is the AbMat so popular with Crossfit? When placed under the lumbar spine portion of the lower back with the higher portion of the curvature pointed towards the glutes, the Ab Mat creates the optimal environment for the abdominal muscles to move through their full and available range of motion, full elongation, and proper forceful contraction. This is a result of the Ab Mat putting the body in the correct alignment so that the lumbar spine is arched to a 15 to 30 degree angle and the pelvis has anterior tilt and rotation between 10 and 20 degrees to properly extend abdominals to a position that maximizes power and force. Crossfitters like anything that makes them stronger, especially the core which is so important to the success and longevity of training all other muscle groups.
