Everlast Duo Exercise Wheel
Advantages: cheap, easy to store
Disadvantages: not good on laminate floors
I have become a huge fan of exercising over the last year, I have noticed many benefits from exercising. Apart from a 4 stone weight loss and my confidences is soaring, most importantly my moods swings have vanished and I found I have lots of energy.
One of my problem areas was my stomach, after having two children my stomach was no longer flat and tight and I never thought it would every be what it once was but I bought the everlast duo exercise wheel. I bought it from a carboot sale for £1.00 but it can be bought on amazon and from argos for about £7.00.
One of the reasons I bought the everlast duo wheel was because its small and easy to store as I have no room for bulky fitness equipment. The wheel is basically shaped like a car wheel that has two handles. The handles have grooved grips on them which make it comfortable to hold and the handles feel solid which allows you to have good control over the wheel. The wheel has grips on it as well which allows you better control and its thick enough for it to be sturdy.
It takes a bit of practice to use the wheel but practice makes perfect in my opinion, It can be used in many different positions but I find the simple position works best for me, it comes with a instruction chart on how to use. I kneel on my knees and hold the handles and roll the wheel forward and back. Once I mastered the basics I can now do the more advanced moves.
I could feel it working after about 5 reps, it works on strengthening my core muscles and toned my stomach. I use it in the morning and before bed for about 10 mins each time, I would suggest starting with a few reps and building your way up to avoid any muscle strain. I have used this for about a year now and my stomach is noticeably flat and toned, I find using the everlast duo wheel much better and comfortable than doing sit ups and it gives the same results but without getting a sore back.
It has to be used on a flat surface, I avoid using it on my laminate flooring as it slides away from me and I do it on my carpet as it works better and find it adds a little resistance meaning I have to work harder. My wheel I bought was black all over but I have seen them in different colours.
Summary: better than doing sit ups
