AbSculptor is an at-home workout device with a design that's meant to enable you to work your abdominals and your arms while sitting on a chair or couch. Each device consists of a backrest that's been designed to align your spine as you move your body forward and back in a modified form of the traditional abdominal crunch, plus two resistance bands. With each of these exercise devices, you'll receive a guide that'll provide you with more exercises to do and a nutritional plan that may help you lose weight.
The cost of AbSculptor is $39.98 plus $9.99 shipping, for a total price of $49.97.

To get started with your AbSculptor, place it against the back of a chair or couch so you can rest your own back against it while you sit down normally. The gray base should be at the bottom and the two yellow resistance bands should be at the top. You should also be able to see the yellow padding on the body. If your device doesn't look like this, you may need to flip it horizontally, vertically or both.
Once your device is positioned correctly, sit down and press your back against it. Grab onto the handles of your yellow resistance bands (one handle should be in each hand) and pull on them slightly so your arms are sticking out in front of you. In this position, your elbows should be slightly bent.
While holding onto your resistance bands, begin to repetitively bend forward and then tilt yourself slightly back, as if you're doing abdominal crunches on the floor. If you're doing them correctly, meaning in an ideal position, you'll hear a little click each time you complete one. To work your arms along with your abdominals, simply pull on the resistance bands so that your arms are nearly straight as you bend forward.
You can use this device for just a couple of minutes or as long as you feel comfortable, but you should keep in mind that using it for longer will typically yield more dramatic results. When you're done, remove it from your chair or couch and store it in a safe place until it's next use. It's fairly compact, so you might choose to slide it under your sofa or lean it against the wall until it's needed again. You can wipe down your device with a damp cloth and water before you store it away, but this is optional.
Virtually any adult man or woman can comfortably use this device, as all it requires is that you're able to sit up and move your arms. You can choose the length of your own workout, so those who aren't in great physical shape might choose to do just a few crunches, while fitter people may do 100 a day. Typically, teens who have reached an adult height will also be able to use this exercise device, although you may want to provide adult supervision as a teenager does so.
The AbSculptor is compact enough to be portable, and most users won't have difficulty carrying it from room to room in their home, if necessary. If you'll be going on a trip of any length and want to keep up your workouts while you're on the road, it'll also fit comfortably into the backseat or trunk of a vehicle.
This at-home exercise tool has been designed with the traditional abdominal crunch in mind, but you'll be able to do at least four additional exercises that'll tone your abdominals or arms with it. To find out more about these exercises, you can consult the included workout guide. Furthermore, once you become more well-versed in exercise techniques, you might even choose to make up some exercises of your own.
It's not necessary that you change your diet once you start using the AbSculptor, especially if you're satisfied with your weight. However, if you want to, the device comes with a nutritional plan that will help you become even more healthy than you would by using the piece of equipment alone. If you use the nutritional plan in conjunction with your device, you may notice that your appearance changes for the better at a rapid rate.
Some people love the gym, but if you're one of those people who'd rather work out alone or with people you know at home, the AbSculptor will likely satisfy you. You'll be able to pull it out and use it in seconds, even while you're watching a movie in your pajamas, instead of having to get dressed to walk, drive or cycle to the gym. Even if you enjoy the gym on a regular basis, this at-home device may be useful to you on days when the weather is bad or you're pressed for time.
Many at-home workout devices, such as treadmills and exercise bicycles, require electricity. Fortunately, though, that's not the case with the AbSculptor. It doesn't even require batteries and will require little to no assembly once it arrives at your home. You'll be able to keep using it if the power's out, and if you travel to a cottage or campsite with no electricity, you'll be able to make use of it there. If you think you might like to work out in your backyard, but there's no electrical outlet close by, that'll also be an option.
If you were to lie on the floor and do crunches or other abdominal exercises, even with a yoga mat or a pillow underneath you, you might experience back or neck pain (or both). The AbSculptor will keep you sitting upright, though, so you'll be less likely to feel any pain as you move. Plus, you'll know if your spine isn't aligned properly, as you won't hear the device click and then you'll be able to change your posture so you don't hurt yourself.
The AbSculptor will allow you to complete a variety of toning exercises for your abdominals and arms, but on its own, it won't do much for your legs. You could try to work some leg lifts into your routine, but without any resistance bands or weights for the legs, these may not do much for you. Your bottom also won't get a great deal of exercise from one of these devices since it'll be planted on your seat most of the time.
You must always hang on to the resistance bands while doing abdominal crunches or any other exercise with your AbSculptor. If you let go of the bands, your back will lose contact with the device's backrest, which will stop the backrest from aiding with your posture.
