  • I'm not sure there is a specific machine that is best. Pilates, crunches and core work seem to be the best.

  • A hula hoop is a great way to work on abdominal muscles.

  • I don't know of a machine. There is a resistance machine where I go that you sit in a seat and grab these soft bars that you pull over your shoulders and hold against your chest. Then you lean forward against the resistance of the bars. This is an ab machine, but not one that I can see having in your house. Curls, reverse curls, and so forth, are the best that I know of for the abs.

  • you would probably have better luck doing all the machines and using the elliptical or treadmill.
