So you have a “Head” it weighs 10 pounds (Maybe some of you 12). You have a neck, that is fragile (lots of stuff runs through it, valuable to thinking) and actually the neck gets hurt easily a lot in fitness. If the neck is not supported correctly or held right there is added strain to not only the neck but the back. So when I see a trainer in a gym give a dumbbell to a client to hold on their chest so they have more resistance, I just want to get sick. I just shake my head and roll my eyes and think “Certified” to ruin the cervical part of the neck. What a HEAD trip for me as an instructor.
Unless you are training for body building or you want a big thick neck, you do NOT need to add weights to a AB and waist workout. In fact the “Head” is TOO heavy. It is best to start by sitting up and slowly go back till you fill your ABS. You own head will be held by your ABS. NOT the other way around.
Even putting you hands behind the head makes it heavier! Get the “Head” out of the AB workout and allow the spine to bend, twist, crunch, sinch and do what the spine and core are suppose to do. The ABS are to look good. look sexy and cut and give you great posture. Speaking of CUT, If we could just cut OFF the “HEAD”, we would be able to work the core easier! So, what is my point? When you sail a ship and you get a “HEAD” wind, it takes a little longer to get where you are going. I use The RollerSizeR to hold the “HEAD” and help the neck support the weight of the “HEAD”. It takes the “HEAD” out of the AB workout so the ABS can get the workout they need. So “SET” sail and “CUT” the waist and WAKE UP with your core routine.
