    What's the best abdominal workout equipment for fat loss?

    Hello all,

    May be somewhat of a generic question, but if I were to buy one piece of workout equipment strictly for my stomach shaping/toning what would it be, what is the absolute best out there?

    I have a normal Zuma - Pacific fitness home gym that I use everyday but I want something that targets my core a little better. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    equipment? there is no "magic equipment". 99% of the advertised products for ab exercises are all garbage and are pure gimics as they don't properly work your abs and don't even begin to work your core. Do core exercises like seated twists with a medicine ball, or "dead bug" on a BOSU.

    I know, that's why I asked - I didn't know if the forum had an opinion on a piece of equipment that actually worked.

    the only real equipment would be an inversion table or a chinup bar for your doorway so you can to leg pullups ... off the top of my head. They aren't specific to abs tho

    Body fat level is going to be the most important factor in whether or not you have visible or flat abs. As far as equipment goes I'd say a simple exercise ball is great and also an ab rollout wheel. Both of these are cheap, versatile, and help you in abdominal training.

    i use an exercise ball and the BOSU. It's actually pretty crazy how many exercises you can do with just those two pieces of equipment

    I do ab exercises for more than 20 years and now, in my sixties, enjoy over average core strength and flexibility. The best ab equipment is the one you use. For the first, I recommend an abdominal exercise ball. Just put it in your home, enjoy the big colorful ball, sit on it during chores, do exercises in between. Muscles will get stronger. BMR will increase. That is good for weight loss.

    Diet is the most important factor. Need that BF% to be 10% or less.
