"The AB-Inforcer initially did not make since to me," stated Michael Alexandrov, USA national record holder in the breast stroke.

"I was not aware that I was rotated and had muscular core imbalances that were affecting my lower back and postural position in the water.  It gave me awareness and information to transfer functionally into the water regarding awareness of 'turning my lights on' and bracing'.  Even though theoretically I did not get it in the beginning, it is invaluable information.  

Now I can maintain my correct lumbar curvature and keep my core and entire posture engaged for my whole race."  You don't have to understand it or how the AB-Inforcer Core Biofeedback Trainer works.  

Lee Brandon, CSCS, Olympic Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, states:  "Once you learn the techniques and awareness 2 dimensionally on the machine (AB-Inforcer) and practice it functionally in the water.  'Practice makes permanent" and then you program a new neuromuscular motor pattern grooving a whole new water dynamic position duplicating great neutral spine biomechanics in the pool!" 

USA Olympic Trials for this summers London Olympic games, start June 24th, 2012.

Keep your eye out for this great talent on the USA team!!!"

CURE FOR CHRONIC PAIN? Actress, Tiiu Leek shares hope...

Tiiu Leek-Jacobson

This review is from: AB-Inforcer® (Health and Beauty)

The Ab-inforcer has really helped to strengthen my core muscles. The lighted remote device lets me know if I am doing the exercise correctly and optimizing my workout. Hence the expression: keep your lights on. If you're using the muscles correctly, the lights on the remote will turn on. If not, you make adjustments. As my abs have become stronger, my low back pain has been reduced. It's a lightweight, simple but effective helper to prevent further injury. I can recommend the Ab-inforcer without hesitation. I love it!

Exercise has helped to make me feel better in general. The targeted program I do with Lee, using the ab-inforcer, has really helped to cushion my spine from the inside and my abs stronger. I lift grocery bags, my small thirty pound dog, large water bottles, etc. using those muscles and preventing further injury. 

When I am doing the exercises designed for me, I am not as aware of the pelvic nerve pain ...maybe the endorphins help me to get up and over that pain. Let me just say, I'm not a dedicated fan of exercise...but I do like how I feel after it... so I'll just continue."

There are so many who deal with Chronic pain and exercise in good form has been proven clinically to assist in pain management for a variety of reasons: Endorphins (300x's as potent as morphine are released), muscle is a powerful tool and the more we have the more it assists us structurally...There are so many more benefits, these are just a few!
