The Good Luck Abdominal Muscle Trainer looks like a cute stuffed animal but its really an exercise mutt designed to help you on the exercise mat.
This plush puppy hides a weighty secret beneath its 100% polyester fur: a cotton/linen bag filled with 4kg (just over 8.8 lbs) of sterilized sand. Think of it as a sort of canine-o-morphic bean bag whose “boneless” body will weigh you down or let you lift it up, depending on your workout technique of the moment.
Besides general fatigue, the main problem plaguing exercisers who perform sit-ups is the need to keep the feet firmly fastened to the floor. Working out with a friend is one way to deal with such light-footedness but many people prefer to work out alone. That's where the Good Luck Abdominal Muscle Trainer come in: drape it over your feet and work those abs to the max!
The video above is rather long (over 9 minutes) but it does illustrate a number of ways you can employ the Good Luck Abdominal Muscle Trainer to enhance your workout routine. Sure, you might look a little silly at public gyms and in group exercise sessions but the laughs will fade when your workout dog works away those pounds. Order yours from Amazon Japan.
