In a study sponsored by the American Council on Exercise (ACE), the Biomechanics Lab
at San Diego State University compared 13 of the most common abdominal exercises (with and without
fitness equipment) and ranked them according to their effectiveness of muscle stimulation. The
Captain's Chair ranked as the second most effective at strengthening the rectus abdominus and
the most effective at strengthening the obliques.
The Captain's Chair Station allows users to perform multiple exercise such as: knee
raises, leg raises, dips, and crunches, in a vertical manner instead of the typical method of lying
on the ground. This stimulates the core and helps to build an overall lean, toned and strong
mid-section. The Captain's Chair is a great alternative to performing core exercises on the
potentially dew-soaked ground.
Strengthens abdominals, obliques, chest, shoulders, and triceps.
Compound exercise uses chest, arms, and core muscles simultaneously.
Sit-Ups/Crunches: Tightens core muscles to improve posture and decrease back pain.
Helps align neck & back properly.
Not Suitable for people with general health conditions.
Do not over exert yourself.
Keep fingers, toes, hair or other body parts away from equipment elements during exercise.
The freestanding, powder-coated Captain's Chair Station has an all-steel construction
that features a three piece backrest, padded arm rests, non-slip grip handles and stabilizing foot bar.
