Real people, real results. The Ab-Carver Pro can help transform your body to get that lean flat stomach and six pack abs you’ve always wanted. Proper diet and exercise are key elements to any weight loss program and the above are just three examples of Carver success stories. The results above were achieved with exercise and a reduced calorie diet. Your results will vary.


3 Rules of Carving
  • Quality Not Quantity – Proper form is critical for best results. Stay focused. Keep your core tight.
  • Learn Your Limits – Carving is an intense exercise, especially the first time you try it. It is not unusual to feel sore after your first carving workout. This is a tough exercise and it will take time to build your core.
  • Take It Slow – Carving is not about speed, it’s about slow and controlled muscle contractions. Pace yourself. Moving slowly lets you focus on maintaining proper form and getting results.

    some high lights if you want to know some of what you’ll find_ some of what you need to know to effectively use this:

    The Ab Carver Pro has many modifications; like the one on its rolling function. The spring like mechanism, known as the carbon steel coil, installed in this equipment will create a resistance. That’s where you’re really working those ab muscles. When you roll back, it provides assistance.

    This workout can be a bit strenuous if you’ve never tried it before. That’s ok. Go easy on yourself. Your body needs some time to get accustomed to this workout. So if you’re a beginner, intermediate or advanced, there’s a different rolling plan for each:

    For beginners:

    If you’re a beginner, position yourself about 12-15 inches against the wall, and roll out against it. The wall will act as a blockade, so that your rolling is controlled. Your thigh area should be approximately 65-70 degrees against the floor. By doing so, you’re allowing yourself to understand the movement and exercise.

    For intermediary:

    At intermediary level, there is no such need to use the wall as a barrier. Roll out a little further than the beginners’ level, with your thighs about 45 degrees against the floor.

    For advanced:

    This is a pro position. If you’ve worked with an ab wheel for some time now, then this is the position you should be going for. For the advanced level, roll against the floor.

    Based on the level you’re rolling at, roll forward and backward; 5 seconds to roll forward and 5 seconds to roll back.

    Step 4: Rolling left and right

    Now that you’ve understood the rolling, let’s move on. Continue the same movement in step 3. Use the handle to maneuver the grip to the left and right by placing pressure downwards. The wide wheel of the Ab Carver Pro and the coil system will allow an easier turn, without putting added pressure on your lower back.

    This position of alternating between forward, left and right will exercise your obliques.

    Step 5: Pace yourself

    If this is your first time, carve about 10 repetitions or “reps”; that is 5 left and 5 right. Remember, this exercise is not about how fast you can accomplish a certain round; it’s about exercising your muscles without causing them injury. Most people wrongly presume that if they work out faster, they are burning more calories. Not quite. Pacing yourself effectively will make your abs work harder, yielding better results.

    A Three-Week Workout Plan

    In order to achieve your goal of sculpted abs, continue on with a workout plan over the course of 3 weeks, by gradually increasing your pace. The Perfect Ab Carver Pro comes with a manual that outlines a 3 week work out plan. Along with following this plan, it is imperative that you eat healthy. Remember, if you’re going to burn 400 calories in your workout, you should at least consume 200 calories.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
    Quality:
    It sure doesn’t look like much. I got it confused with the touted “ab roller” however, this requires a lot more balancing and can work more areas of your body. It’s a sturdy gadget and I have no worries about it holding up after my 190 lb body leans against it.

    Value:
    For the current price it seems like a solid value. Even on sale, my 12 lb hand weights were similarly priced!

    Support:
    This is where the product loses a star. There is very minimal instruction or inspiration with the packaging. A short video would really help. A longer video (20 minutes?) with music and variations would be perfect. This instruction sheet from the website gives you more insight on how to use it and even gives you a workout schedule (you don’t want to work those abs hard two days in a row).

    Interest/challenge:
    I can’t think of many gadgets that hold my interest for long periods. I use Jackie Warner videos for cross-training style training. Using the ab trainer after working with Jackie is a great way to incorporate the ab trainer. Personal Training with Jackie: Crunch-Free Xtreme Abs would be a great place to start if your abs are you biggest problem area. Because you can set goals and work the Perfect Fitness Ab Carver Pro with increasing reps and in different areas, you can feel the progress in different areas of your body and should work someone at a beginner to intermediate level. The advanced level person may have to be creative to increase the intensity when their body weight isn’t pushing them hard enough.

    Advantages:
    Portable. Lightweight. Well-made and sturdy. Small/easy to store.

    Note:
    I was given the Ab Carver without cost in exchange for this review. However, there is no pressure from Amazon or the manufacturer to give a positive review and I do my best to be honest and helpful. Thanks for those voting “YES” and feel free to ask any more questions below.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)

    Pros:
    Ab carving is a good adjunct to abdominal training
    Well made/good quality device
    Contoured handles are more comfortable
    Knee pads are comfortable

    Cons:
    Not significantly better than devices that are far less costly
    Large investment for a device that performs a small number of exercises
    Handles bow a bit for heavier exercisers

    OVERVIEW
    The Perfect Fitness Ab Carver wheel is one of the latest products sold by Perfect Fitness. The Ab Carver is basically a suped up Ab Wheel. The company promises that this device will ‘carve your core’ and give you ‘ripped abs + sculpted arms.’ The bottom line is that this device is a well-made ab wheel that does what an ab wheel is supposed to do–hence the 4 star rating.

    However, whether you need to spend the extra cash to buy this deluxe model ab wheel is a matter of conjecture and will be addressed in this review. The key problem I have with this device is that for me it was not significantly better than similar devices that you can buy on Amazon that are in the 10 to 15 dollar range.

    For some, the Ab Carver may enhance the ab wheel enough to make it worth the purchase price. For me, I didn’t see enough of a difference and would have purchased the less expensive device. I would suggest trying the Ab Carver Pro out in a big box store or a gym before purchasing, to make sure that buying this deluxe version of the ab wheel makes sense for you.

    THE LONG REVIEW
    The venerable ab wheel may well be the grandaddy of all abdominal exercise devices. Ab wheels have been around for time immemorial and seem to fall in and out of favor as a way to strengthen the abdominal muscles.

    WHAT IS IN THE BOX
    The box contains the Ab Carver wheel, two contoured comfort handles marked for right and left, knee pads, and a quick assembly guide. You simply snap the handles in place and you are ready to go. Everything assembles easily and quickly. No fuss, no muss.

    Quite oddly, they did not provide a sheet of instructions as to how to use the device. For instructions, you are referred to the Ab Carver website where you can download (and print if desired) the instruction set.

    This is probably the wave of the future, where companies save a few bucks by not printing an extra sheet of instructions, but for a device in this price range it’s a little frustrating.

    HOW TO USE THE AB CARVER
    That said, it’s fairly obvious how you might use the Ab Carver. You sit in a kneeling position, grip the handles, and roll forward. You must be careful to start with your back curved and you have to make sure that your core stays tight throughout the range of motion. If you let your back sag at the end of the motion, you risk straining your lower back.

    You can Ab Carve forward or you can carve to the right or to the left. Carving to the sides activates more of your obliques. The Ab Carver is contoured–tapered on either side, making right and left carving easier than it would be on a conventional wheel.

    Additionally, the Ab Carver has an inner spring. As you carve forward, the spring winds up. This is supposed to give you a little assist on the motion backwards. The extra spring action is supposed to improve your level of comfort in the exercise.

    HOW DOES IT COMPARE
    In order to write a reasonable review, I caved and bought a simple ab wheel from a local big box store. I bought this Weider device [Weider Toner Wheel], on sale at a big box store for $9.99 (plus tax).

    I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the fact is that I didn’t notice much difference between the Ab Carver and the cheaper device. Here are the highlights:

    1) Yes, the handles of the cheaper device weren’t quite as comfortable as the contoured, comfort handles of the Ab Carver.

    2) The Weider lacked the inner spring, but for me it didn’t make much of a difference. I imagine if you are lighter in weight (I weigh in about 190 lbs so take this into account) the inner spring may give you more of a backward snap. My 17-year-old son did enjoy a more perceptible assist from the Ab Carver’s inner spring but also agreed that it wasn’t a deal maker.

    3) The inner spring is a bit of a mixed blessing. It adds some tension on the way out and assists a bit on the way back but it also stops the wheel once it has uncoiled completely. Given that your position can change a bit while ab carving, sometimes the spring stops you just short of the origin and you have to adjust the position of the wheel. Not terrible, just an annoyance you need to get used to. Additionally, it adds a complex part to the device that has a potential to break or malfunction.

    4) The tapered…
