This 6 in 1 set is the number 1 seller in core strength and abdominal training on Amazon. I have been using the set for a couple of months and so far I am very pleased. The quality of the equipment definitely does not reflect the low price.
If you have never used an ab roller then you are in for a special treat. The ab rollout is an exercise designed to target the core muscles including the rectus abdominis, obliques, and erector spinae (lower back). It also targets the latissimus dorsi (upper back) and shoulder muscles. Making for a good upper body workout with nothing more than a small wheel with a handle on either side.
The ab roller I received was slightly different than the picture but the quality is great, I was expecting something that would feel flimsy and wouldn’t last long but I was wrong. Even supporting my 230 pounds it has worked great and functions just like it did when it was new.
The push up bars have a triangular design which makes them very sturdy, I was surprised with how well they were built for the price of this set. Using your body weight as resistance, these push-up bars will dramatically increase your strength as well as range-of-motion allowing you to get a deeper stretch which will increase muscle growth. Uniquely designed to alleviate stress on your wrists and hands, the comfort-grip handles offer an infinite number of angles to blast your chest, shoulder and triceps muscles. Simple to use, strong, sturdy, durable and the handles are quite comfortable.
One side of the gliding discs is made of a foam material for smooth use on hardwood floors and the other side is a slick plastic for use on carpets. Use the gliding discs to engage and strengthen your core, glutes and abs with a full range of exercises. Personally I had never used gliding discs so I was excited to try these, which also makes them the only item in the set that I can’t compare to another brand. With that said, they worked very good on carpet and hardwood, but they did not slide very well on the rubber floor in my gym.
If you have a place you can exercise with carpet or a hard floor surface like tile or hardwood then these can be used in so many ways to give you a great workout. If there is some interest in this comment below and I will put together a gliding disc workout.
This is the main place this set lost points with me, these grip strength trainers would be good for a beginner or a teen that is looking to improve grip strength for sports. For intermiediate to experienced lifters they aren’t going to offer much grip strength training. In my opinion even without these in the kit it would still be a great value for what you get.
This isn’t the highest quality of jump rope I have used, but it feels more like a $50 jump rope than one that came in a set for less than that price. The grips are comfortable in the hand, the bearings in the handles are pretty smooth and so far it is still working like the day I opened the package.
Not much to say about the knee pad, it is a small chunk of foam that works to kneel on when using the ab roaler, sliders or push up bars. If you don’t have a foam mat or yoga mat to use then this will be very useful for protecting your knees.
I purchased this set myself but I do have an amazon affiliate account and will get a small revenue if purchased through the link above. If you are looking for a small equipment set or even just an ab roller I would highly recommend this set. I was very impressed with the quality of everything and will be using something from this set every day in my workout routine.
Let me know in the comments below if you purchased this set and what you think of using an ab roller.
