The Torso Track is an exercise machine that works the abdominal muscles by altering push-ups. Working out with a Torso Track requires only the machine itself. It is suggested to do three sets of 10 repetitions to achieve a flat stomach.
- Set up the machine
Assembly instructions, which come with the equipment, require installing the handlebar. Once the machine is assembled, place it on the floor and ensure that there is enough space to kneel and stretch over it comfortably.
- Prepare for the exercise
Kneel on the kneel pad in front of the Torso Track. Grip the handlebars. Pull your abdominal muscles in, but do not hold your breath. Inhale.
- Perform the glide out
Exhale. As you do so, glide forward, keeping a firm grip on the handle bars. Keep your abdominal muscles tight for control, and glide as far as you comfortably can. If you feel yourself collapsing, you have gone too far.
- Return to the base position
Contract your abdominal muscles. This should pull you back into a kneeling position.
- Perform the repetitions
Perform 10 repetitions of the glide and return, then rest.
- Stretch your back
In between the three sets of repetitions, stretch out your back. Lie on the floor on your back. Bring your knees up to your chest, hugging them. Maintain this position for 20 seconds.
