I am considering buying an ab wheel. Will exercising with it make my abs look stronger and more apparent?

I'm not sure if an ab wheel will have a substantial effect on my abs in a short time. Lower and up abs I think will blow up.

  • Probably worth mentioning that you can get most of the benefits of an ab wheel with a cheap towel and a smooth floor.

  • @SeanDuggan But then you can pick up an ab wheel in the January sales for about £5, and can use it on carpet :)

Ab wheels are a great tool, but unfortunately, that alone won't give you visible abs.

The bottom line is that no matter how well-shaped your abs are, they won't be visible unless you burn the fat that covers them.

In other words, I do recommend ab wheels. I love them. But the real way to get visible and toned abs, is to get your diet in order. Both these things combined will have the effect you desire.

Since this is a very commonly asked question, I'll refer you to some similar questions with decent answers.
