Ab Carver Pro Video Review – From A REAL (Out-of-Shape) Woman… LOL


 

 

I recently got the Ab Carver Pro. This thing is seriously amazing. WELL worth the ~$39 I paid for it. I’ve talked several people here into trying it out, and they all love it too!

At first, I tried to do it like I saw on the infomercial. BIG MISTAKE. πŸ˜› LOL.

I fell… three different times. haha. I finally read the directions and also watched some “instructional videos” on YouTube.

And let me just say, those “fitness experts” on YouTube make this thing look EASY. So I thought I would show you what it looks like when a REAL (totally out of shape) woman tries it for the first time. πŸ™‚ You know, a TRUE review. Enjoy!

Feel free to laugh. Out loud even. I did! While editing out my “wardrobe malfunction” especially. πŸ˜› haha…

    I love the video, I’ve contemplated a similar an roller a couple times but I too am accident prone πŸ™‚

    • Lynn Terry says:

      That’s what I worried about too, Carrie. And I did fall a few times (lol) trying to do it like they showed on the TV infomercials. πŸ˜› But once I read the directions and tried it right… WOW. It’s a seriously good workout!

      I can see that this thing really WORKS. Ricky and I are going to do it together. πŸ™‚ Core strength has been a goal of mine for awhile due to a lower back injury and all sorts of muscle / nerve pain issues. Plus serious imbalance (haha) which I am hoping better core strength will fix…

      I aim to show off some awesome new curves … soon! πŸ™‚

    You did a great job on this video! Thanks so much for being so “real” and “honest” about it all. I’m 58 and although I’m in decent shape for my age, I need to be real myself about my limitations so I don’t injure myself to the point where I can’t do anything. When younger, I always exercised with the “no pain, no gain” philosophy. Unfortunately, that way of thinking only ever set me up for injury. Now, my philosophy is “all things in moderation” and “slow and steady wins the race”. Your video spoke to me in a way that it is OK not to kill myself in order to get results! πŸ™‚

    That looked painful Lynn. I used to have an old version of the ab roller and I believe it’s somewhere in my garage. I also need help with my core and it helps with lower back pain. You inspired me to have my husband look for the ab roller and that way I can join you.
    Awesome video. You showed the way real people would use the ab roller. Thanks for that and all the great tips you provide.

  4. Tiff says:

    I wonder if I could do this with my bum knee. Probably not. But it looks great!

    • Lynn Terry says:

      I would say no, Tiff – even though I don’t really feel any pressure on my knees when I do it. I just did it again today, so it’s “fresh”. Anyway, as well made as this is, I would click on the company name… and see what else they make. It’s such high quality. I bet they have other gear that isn’t knee-based!

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Ahh – check out this one: Perfect Fitness Crunch πŸ™‚ Look at the second picture, with the girl on her back. And this one is under $30!

      I’m really impressed with their quality. AND their pricing. Nice…

    • Kimberly Allen says:

      Hi Tiff
      I have bad knees too and you may be able to do this if you can handle kneeling. Honestly all the pressure is on my core muscle’s and my knees don’t feel affected at all.

      • Lynn Terry says:

        Good point, Kimberly – like I said, I don’t feel it in my knees at all because your core is doing all the work. But I do like the Fitness Crunch as an alternative! It looks very versatile too, which is cool.

  5. Kimberly Allen says:

    Hi Lynn,
    Awesome video! It was so good to see you doing the same exercise I started about three weeks ago. I got an ab wheel instead of the Ab Roller (It was only 10 bucks on Ebay & I’m cheap LOL!) I start out only being able to do 3 sets of five then I progressed to ten reps and today was my second day at 15. My flabby gut is actually already starting to disappear and my arms and shoulders feel the benefits also! Its a killer workout, but I love it! You should start a challenge
    By the way I am an avid followers of yours!
    Kimberly

    • Lynn Terry says:

      That’s awesome, Kimberly! I am really enjoying mine. I did 30 reps today (10 each way) and it felt GREAT. πŸ™‚ It actually is part of the current 17 day mini challenge – to exercise every day – but I may set up something separate (just for exercise) for this last stretch through August 23rd. Stay tuned. I’ll send out a link if I do… *cheers*

  6. Joni says:

    Great video Lynn (Slim too!). Glad I watched and got the tips that you shared (toes down, shorter distance to start, etc.). I’ve got the old fashioned roller and need to give it a whirl…I have the armpit tits you talk about πŸ™‚ and definitely the muffin top that need to go bye bye!!

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Those darn muffins & pits are a stubborn pain! πŸ˜› lol – I’m glad you’re joining me o this! And I’m REALLY glad I actually read the instructions… because now I *love* this workout! lol *cheers*

    • Lynn Terry says:

      lol Thank you Debbie! πŸ™‚ Yes, it took me a bit to get the hang of it and really figure it out – but now I can easily do 90 reps on it… and FEEL the burn! πŸ™‚

    Hi …Great video. I spoke to a physio therapist about this as Ive just had a total hip replacement and 7 years ago had a slipped /bulging disk. He said, lift your feet ( cross them ) it takes pressure off the lower back like the L4 L5 area. ( I found it also helps with balance ) I don’t know if this is correct but Ive been told to do push ups like that too. Easier on the lower back..
