Kevin Durant’s closely guarded attempts happen all over the court.

SportVU technology was originally developed to track missiles.

It is thus always advisable to include a few changes from time to time in order to make the workout regime more interesting. This not only helps in rebuilding motivation but also challenges the body to gear up and shed the flab. In my personal experience of sweating it out at a local gym for years, I have realized that losing weight isn’t as tough as getting six-pack abs. That’s where the Ab Solo can step in, to help you chisel out an spectacular abdomen. This latest abdomen and core training gear seems to be the hottest addition in the arena of fitness training. Joe and Chris Arsenault’s idea has shaped up well to make way for an exceptional abdominal, cardio, as well as core muscle workout without the help of any human assistance.
