Back Exercise Unit
The Saunders Group has released the Total Back—an all-in-one active, passive and functional trunk exercise unit. While other exercise units isolate and exercise abdominal and lumbar muscles like the Total Back, the Total Back allows side sit-ups that cause back and abdominal muscles to co-contract functionally, claims the manufacturer. Changing the angle of the table lets the user make the exercise level very easy or extremely challenging to accommodate all levels of conditioning. The Total Back is suitable for both preventive training and for retraining after a back injury.
