This Rogue Original AbMat—the fundamental core training accessory, flexes the spine to lengthen the abdominal muscles for more effective sit-ups using compound movements. The AbMat is made in the USA and uniquely designed to provide the full range of motion necessary to train the entire abdominal muscle groups.

In the old sit-up the feet are anchored and the hip flexors do much of the work. The back is arched in an unsafe position and momentum is what finishes the movement. With the AbMat a proper sit up can be done with a neutral spine and without momentum for a more complete range of motion and more effective conditioning.
Positioned under the lower back, the contoured AbMat enables a full extension of the abdominals at the beginning of a sit-up by tilting the spine, which is not possible on a flat surface. It also stabilizes the pelvis as you rise up, allowing the abs to fully contract. The result is a more efficient and complete core training of the abdominal, oblique, and back muscles.
For over a decade, the AbMat has been manufactured exclusively in America, using a high-quality, low compression set foam with a durable vinyl exterior. Comfortable and stable on most any surface, indoors or out. Includes a 1 year limited warranty.
The Original AbMat foam provides comfortable stability for the pelvis and padding for the spine. For a firmer pad look to the AB-2 Firm AbMat. For even more padding and comfort try the AbMat Wrap Accessory.
Proper spine position makes a good form sit-up easy for beginners to learn and execute, while adjusting pad direction and arm position can create enough load to make the movement challenging for advanced core training.
