Exercise Equipment North Las Vegas NV

A Captain's chair is used for extremely effective abdominal exercises. Most gyms have them and it looks like a high chair without a seat. The best way to perform the exercise correctly is to stand on the chair (there are foot rests on either side), grip the handles to stabilize your upper body and rest your forearms on the arm pads.

The Scoop on Seatless Sit-Ups

Q: What is a captain's chair for exercise and is it effective?

 

A Captain's chair is used for extremely effective abdominal exercises. Most gyms have them and it looks like a high chair without a seat. The best way to perform the exercise correctly is to stand on the chair (there are foot rests on either side), grip the handles to stabilize your upper body and rest your forearms on the arm pads. Then, press your back against the pad and slowly lift your knees towards your chest. Again make sure to keep your lower back firmly in place - otherwise you won't be strengthening your abs, but your hip muscles. Try for a few repetitions at first, working your way up to 15.
