Default Ab Carver Pro

Anyone own/try this?
Thinking of ordering it.
I am hell bent on a six pack in the next four months.
Have done quite well so far with Shaun T and FitStar app with Tony Gonzalez.
I am happy to just be doing this as was supposed to be operated six months ago for my back.I am keeping my 25 LB weight loss from a year ago down and now working hard on abs with inversion crunches and the two programs I have listed.
Great results to date but want to now crank it up.
Any feedback appreciated before I spend the $40 and try it out.

Just buy the regular ab wheel. Much cheaper and tad harder as you don't have the spring resistance. Does it's job, but is hard as hell

Honestly, Carlos. I think it's a waste of money. Someone had left it at the gym, so I decided to toy with it for a couple sets, ehhhhh... Nothing special. If you have a bad back, don't get it. I'm sure you've heard it already, abs are made in the kitchen, sort of...

Simple ab exercises and core workouts along with a well balance diet, will get you what you want.

Thanks Huy.
I figured it was another gimmick but relatively speaking, a cheap one.
I have beyond a bad back so I think I will stay away.

A regular wheel as was mentioned is so much cheaper but don't think I'll be able to make it back up.

I am sold on the kitchen part. While no perfect saint, I have evolved tremendously in my diet. I think I will stick with FitStar and Hip Hop Abs as I have seen incredible noticeable results to date.

Thanks again for saving me $40.

I tend to disagree some. I have the regular wheel and it helps me keep my pack in combination to healthy eating choices and regular exercise.

The Shaun T T-25 series has a 25 min ab workout that really does a nice job. My back is pretty bad as well and it doesn't hurt me at all. It's kind of a waste to buy the whole thing for the ab workout but if you want a 25 min workout regimen that puts your heart rate into the 150's=160's for the whole time, it is really good.

I know! It's a shock that Edwin and I agree on something for a change

I'm not the best guy to offer ANY advice in this area but a six pack doesn't come into play until you get that body % down big time. A million crunches won't help with that without a good daily, challenging cardio regime and a very strict healthy diet. Especially for us guys getting older.

Picking up some weights doesn't hurt either
