AB Squat is an at-home fitness machine for men and women that's been designed to help people of all fitness levels perform a bodyweight squat without straining their knees or ankles. It's meant to be used by virtually all adults, from the young ones who want to lose inches off their waistlines to seniors who want to stay flexible and mobile. It has been stated that the machine will support a weight of up to 220 pounds and that the saddle can be adjusted to suit various heights.
The cost of AB Squat is $199.99 and the shipping is FREE!

It's specified that you'll need to assemble your own AB Squat machine before you can use it, but the assembly process should go quite quickly. Consult the included instruction manual if you need any help with fitting the various pieces together. Note that you won't need to add any batteries, as the machine is powered solely by its spring system and the person who's making use of it.
The default height of this machine's saddle (which looks like the seat of a bike) may coincidentally suit you, but you might have to adjust it to suit your height. To do so, twist the black knob on the back and slide the saddle up or down on its pole without completely removing it from the rest of the machine. When you're done, be sure to twist the black knob to the right again, as far as it can go.
Once your saddle has been adjusted, if necessary, and you've checked all the connections you've made between parts to make sure they're secure, it'll be time to position yourself on your machine. This will involve resting your bottom against the saddle and placing both of your hands on the support bar in front of you. You should not be sitting on the saddle like it's a chair, but your bottom should be making contact with the entire neon green top.
After you've positioned yourself correctly, you can start moving up and down in a squatting position. Meanwhile, the saddle will keep your body positioned at an ideal angle, so you don't injure your spine. Perhaps most importantly, the machine's power-assist spring will help you pop up and down without putting too much pressure on your body. During the first few movements, you may notice that doing a squat with this machine is less fatiguing than doing it on the floor alone can be. You can complete as many squats as you'd like, as long as you're not in pain.
The AB Squat machine has been created for people of all fitness levels, from beginner to advanced, to work out with. As long as a person is mobile enough to walk, they'll likely be able to use this machine without problems. On its own, the spring system carries a resistance of 68 pounds, so if you rest your bottom lightly on the saddle and hang onto the handlebar, you'll only have to support about that amount. However, if you find that too easy, you can release the handlebar, which will make you lift more of your own body weight.
This machine will comfortably support up to 220 pounds, and since many North Americans weigh around 200 pounds these days, most people probably won't break their AB Squat machine while trying to use it. If you weigh a bit more than 220 pounds, though, you may be able to use the machine without damaging it—just be extremely careful, and check the connections between parts after each use. Another thing to keep in mind that no matter what each user weighs, only one user should be using the machine at once.
This squat machine will fold up when you're not using it, which means you'll be able to push it under your bed or another large piece of furniture in seconds. You won't need to worry about it taking up space that you could be using for other activities when no one is using it for squats. Due to its foldable nature, provided that you've got a large enough vehicle, temporarily transporting your machine away from home will also be an option for you.
You won't need any sort of fancy chemical to clean your machine when it gets too covered in sweat or other forms of dirt. You'll simply be able to wipe it down with a mild soap that's been diluted with water. If you want to use it directly after cleaning it, just give it another wipe with a completely dry cloth.
The AB Squat machine is similar to some machines that you'd find at a gym, but you won't have to leave your home in order to use it. Since you won't have to plug it into electricity, you'll even be able to use it outside, if you have a suitable yard and the weather is appropriate. You may especially appreciate a machine like this if you live far from a gym and might have to make a drive that's longer than your workout itself to get there.
Along the same lines, this machine is ideal for seniors who've maintained a certain level of fitness but may not want to leave home on a regular basis to work out. If you're a senior and you use this machine a few times a week, you may find that you're able to stay more mobile and flexible in comparison to others in your age group. This may enable you to keep up to grandkids or pets for a longer period of time without getting tired.
The main movement you'll make while using your AB Squat machine will target your abs, your bottom, and your legs. You should notice that these parts are becoming firmer after a couple of weeks of use, but due to the calories burned during each workout, you may lose weight all over your body. Even if the scale doesn't change, you should get out a measuring tape, as it's possible to lose inches of body fat (by converting it to muscle) without dropping pounds.
With each AB Squat machine, you'll receive a meal plan that's been created with the aim of helping users slim down. While you may lose some weight just by using your machine, without changing your diet, it's best to follow the diet plan (as closely as possible) for optimum results.
Children, aside from those who have reached an adult height, should not be using this type of machine. The machine's saddle has been designed to position an adult body in an ideal manner as the adult exercises, but it may actually throw the body of a shorter child out of alignment. Furthermore, even if you believe a child under your care is tall enough to use this machine, they should be supervised by an adult at all times.
