AB COASTER ® EXERCISES How It Works: The Ab Coaster ® is designed to help you exercise your abdominal muscles via a leg lift motion. Unlike the popular sit-up or ab crunch exercise, which works your abdominals from the “top down”, the Ab Coaster ® moves in the opposite direction, working your abs from the “bottom up.” The basic motion requires you to lift your knees and legs while contracting your abs. The Ab Coaster ® features a Seat moving along a curved track to aid you in performing the abdominal lifting motion. The starting position requires you to kneel on the Seat while resting your arms on the arm rests. The exercise requires you to lift the Seat along the track by using your a bdominal muscles, not by using your arms or your upper body. The key to performing the exercise properly is to concentrate on contracting your ab muscles prior to and while you lift the Seat. Your upper body should be stable and should not be moving or swaying while you exercise. A. FORWARD LIFT 7

7. 1. Adjust pull pin under the Sea t so tha t it is in the “unlocked” mode. 2. Prior to kneeling on Seat , place forearms and elbows on arm pads. Grasp handles firmly to balance your bod y prior to kneeling on Sea t. 3. Kneel on Seat so that your feet are hooked on the back edge of the pad. W ARNING: Use caution when kneeling on seat in “unlocked” position; make sure you mo ve slowly and grasp handles first to keep your body steady before kneeling on the Seat. DO NOT kneel on Seat before you grasp the handles and stabilize your upper body first . 4. In “Free-Style Motion” position, you may create your own workout and use a variety of forward and side lifts. You can twist your core as you rotate the Seat from side to side through the range of motion along the track. (visit www.AbCoaster.com for sample Free-Style Workouts) 5. While exercising in the Free-Style Motion position, keep the speed of exercise at a steady rate. Lift and return the Seat using steady and slow speed. Do not use momentum to lift – concentrate on contracting and using your abs to lift. Do not use excessive force when lifting or returning Seat to starting position and avoid banging Seat against the track. CAUTION: DO NOT LEAVE THE AB COASTER ® SEAT “UNLOCKED” IN THE FREE-MOTION SETTING WHEN YOU ARE FINISHED WITH EXERCISE. LOCK THE SEAT INTO A FIXED POSITION AFTER YOU COMPLETE EXERCISE. C.

10. ADJUSTING THE SEAT The Seat on your Ab Coaster ® can be adjusted to target different areas of your abdominal muscle. The Seat adjustment pin is located at the rear of the Seat below the cushion. There are 4 Seat settings: Front, Left, Right and Free-Style Motion. T o lock the Seat into the Front, Right or Left settings, pull down the pin and move the Seat to the desired setting (Front, Right or Left). Release the pin and adjust the Seat until the pin “pops” into the hole underneath the Seat at the desired setting. Make sure the pin is in the “locked” position and the Seat is secure before you use the Ab Coaster ® . To adjust the Seat for the Free-Style Motion setting, pull down the pin and twist the pin to the “unlocked" setting. Rotate the Seat by hand to ensure that it is moving freely. UNLOCKED LOCKED CAUTION: Getting On and Off the Ab Coaster ® When Seat is in “Unlocked” Free-Style Motion Position: Use extra caution when getting on or getting off Ab Coaster ® while Sea t is “unlocked” in Free-Style Motion setting. Since the Seat is not fixed and locked while in the Free-Style Motion position, make sure you move slo wly and grasp handles first to keep your bod y stead y before kneeling on the Sea t. DO NOT kneel on Seat before you grasp the handles and stabilize your upper body first. Grasping handles first will help prevent you from losing your balance. GETTING ON AND OFF THE AB COASTER ® WRONG! Step 1: Make sure the Ab Coaster ® is placed on a flat, stable surface. Step 2: Approach the Ab Coaster ® from the side, not the back, of the unit. Step 3: Place forearms and elbows on arm pads. Grasp handles to maintain your balance. Step 4: While grasping handles, place knees on Seat so that your feet are hooked on the back edge of the seat. You are now ready to exercise. Unlocked position is for Free-Style Motion. 1 - Foot should be hooked on back edge of seat. 2 - Do not lean forward; sit back toward your heels. 1 2 6
