Let’s take a look at the best abdominal machines to consider buying for home use.
We’ll also provide you with a worst ab machine list so you can avoid the trashy gimmicks.
Now we won’t go into depth as to why the not recommended ones are so lousy . It’s just a waste of time to explain all the details or for you to bother even reading them. In a nutshell, the Wall of Shame list of abdominal exercisers just don’t provide you with any benefit at all.
It’s because they either miss the mark by not improving your abs workout in any way at all or they fail by breaking or falling completely apart in no time.
Hey, let’s get them out of the way now so we can move onto the good stuff …
List of Ab Workout Machines & Gadgets to Avoid
- Ab Roller
- Ab Wheels
- Ab Rocket Twister
- Ab Twist
- Ab Lounge
- Ab Rocker
- Ab Circle Pro
- Ab Doer
- Ab Slider
- Crazy Abs Abdominal Exercise Home Gym
Now if you decide to check around, you will find that there are some people that actually gave these not so good abs exercisers some decent or even 5 star ratings. And many already show LOT’s of poor ratings and complaints.
Great products generally don’t have a long list of bad ratings.
But I’ll tell you that after 6 months or a year of owning a junky abs gadget, many would drop those high ratings down to a 2 or lower. I wish more folks would go back and update the ratings because merchants, like Amazon, do allow it.
But then again, some silly people are embarrassed and won’t ever admit to being duped into buying a gimmicky piece of crapola thanks to slick advertising!
A final and most important comment about the above list …
Some of those gadgets are more likely to cause you injury than any good machine would. So just stay away from them.

Are Ab Machines Even Worth Buying for Home Use?
To me this is a very subjective question.
The answer is only a yes if you can answer affirmatively to these 3 things:
- I’ll be inclined to work out more if I have a machine at home
- I have a place to set it up that won’t be in the way of the other members of my household
- I can afford to buy one and still have money to buy groceries and pay my monthly bills
Actually there is a 4th thing, which is wanting to own good equipment and not junk. But at this point in this article I’m assuming that you already know this!
Buying fitness equipment – no matter how fantastically awesome it might be – will always be a useless waste of money if you don’t motivate yourself to actually use it.
The only one who really knows the answer to that question is you.
So BE REAL with yourself!
If you are fit-lazy and would rather just pop fat burner supplements instead of working out, then do that!
Seriously… I mean it!!!
You may not become fit but you can still lose lot’s of fat – even belly fat. So don’t lie to yourself out of pressure from society to feel like you have to try to get fit. Almost 80% of fat loss is due to diet anyway.
Buy a good fat burner, plus an ab belt and if you can muster it, go for a 20 minute walk a few times each week. It will be time and money that is better spent.
But if you are motivated and you want at seriously toned tummy – or even a rock solid six-pack, then by all means invest in yourself by getting a good quality ab workout machine.
You will get faster and better results showing up on your abdominals by using great ab fitness equipment instead of using other methods like crunches and floor exercises.
And you’ll become fitter as well as healthier … But of course the path you choose will be totally up to you.
