If you’ve ever done the CrossFit workout ‘Annie’ you would have been introduced to an ab mat. Used to fill the space between the floor and the lumbar arch of the spine, they offer support and allow activation of the lower abdominals during sit-ups. Therefore, training without them can add extra stress on the spine and result in an incomplete movement.
Simplicity is the biggest selling point of this training aid. Put the mat on floor, place it under the small of your back and do supported sit ups. The bonus is an increased range of motion. More control and more comfort for this repetitive motion. The ab mat can even be used for things like jackknifes and lateral bends.
As a result, we advise using an ab mat for all your floor based ab exercises if they’re new to your routine. For example, the butterfly sit up is an exercise that benefits from this handy training tool.
