I made reference to Lolo Easy Abs in The Maximuscle Experience but when I came to link to the article I couldn’t find it, so you’ll have to forgive me if this review seems a little hasty.
First of all, you’ll want to download Easy Abs from the App Store. Don’t even read the rest of this article before doing so – I can guarantee it’ll be the best 69p you spend this year (or 99c if you are one of my readers from across the pond).
When you load Easy Abs for the first time, you’ll need to enter a few details and you’ll be prompted to register.
I don’t normally register for anything but in the case of Easy Abs, it doesn’t cost anything and unlocks a load of exercises. In case you were wondering, they are as follows:
Back Extension on Stability Ball
Crunches with Alternating Leg Extensions
Dumbbell Wood Chop (High to Low)
Leg Kickouts on Bench
Overhead Slams with Medicine Ball
Overhead Slams with Rotation Using a Medicine Ball
Prone Cobra on Stability Ball
Prone Iso Abs Plank Arms on Stability Ball
Prone Iso Abs Plank Feet on Stability Ball
Prone Iso Abs Plank with Arms on BOSU
Prone Iso Abs Plank with Feet on BOSU and Knee Tucks
Prone Iso Abs Plank with Feet on BOSU and Leg Abductions
Prone Iso Abs Plank with Feet on Dome Side of BOSU
Reverse Crunch on Core Board
Reverse Crunch with Tubing
Side Iso Abs Plank with Arm on Dyna Disc
Side Iso Abs Plank with Feet on Dome Side of BOSU
Side Iso Abs Plank with Feet on Dyna Disc
Trunk Rotation Seated on Stability Ball with Medicine Ball
Twisting Crunches with Feet Up
Twisting Reverse Crunch
Weighted Sit Ups
With the formalities out of the way, you will be presented with your first workout. Should you want to skip forwards or backwards, you can choose to do so at this point.
To begin with, I battled with the low intensity advanced workout but I have recently upped the tempo from 5 to 7. I’ll do this once at the start of a gym session and again towards the end. It goes without saying that you should start at a level you feel comfortable with and gradually up the difficulty/tempo when the workout becomes less challenging.
I bought Lolo Easy Abs without reading any reviews, assuming it would provide a bit of guidance when I got stuck for ab exercises. How wrong I was – this is a fantastic bit of kit. In addition to a huge range of exercises, it’s great to have a(n albeit virtual) personal trainer barking instructions at you for the duration of the workout, with your favourite gym tunes playing in the background.
