The Vertical Crunch LC

The Abs Company Vertical Crunch LC - The Vertical Crunch Light Commercial (VCLC) by The Abs Company is a light commercial rated upright ab machine with plate loaded resistance for training the upper abdominals, lower abdominals, and obliques. The Vertical Crunch LC is a perfect stand-alone abdominal trainer for personal training studios, hotel fitness centers, home gyms, corporate wellness centers, rehabilitation clinics, apartment complex gyms, and other light commercial applications. It is also acts as a great circuit training component for a complete core training zone. The Vertical Crunch LC has all the same great features of the full commercial version, but in a slightly smaller design and at a more budget-minded price point.

How is the Vertical Crunch exercise performed? To perform the vertical ab crunch exercise, the user first sits with arms extended overhead holding the handles and legs locked with shins against the lower roller pads. In one simultaneous motion the exerciser lifts the lower carriage utilizing the lower abdominals and pulls down the upper carriage using the upper abdominals. The linkage system creates smooth biomechanics for optimal abdominal muscle targeting. The vertical positioning keeps exercisers upright and more comfortable with proper back support while performing an effective crunch motion. More advanced users can train progressively using additional workload resistance (up to 40 pounds) by adding Olympic weight plates to the weight post attached to the upper carriage behind the back pad. Since free weight plates are utilized for resistance, the Vertical Crunch LC has an advantage over traditional selectorized stack machines by allowing micro-loading in 2.5 pound increments (or even smaller in the case of fractional plates). A built-in weight storage post attached to the back frame keeps your fitness area orderly and allows weight plates to be easily accessible between sets. The Abs Company Vertical Crunch LC is also designed with a free-swivel seat which allows the user to seamlessly shift from upper and lower ab training of the rectus abdominis muscle group to oblique training without pausing the workout or having to get off the machine to make adjustments. The seated user simply rotates the seat to the left or right and then performs the same vertical crunching motion.
