Perfect Fitness Ab Carver Pro ab wheel was $40 now $30 @ Amazon

Perfect Fitness Ab Carver Pro ab wheel was $40 now $30 @ Amazon
I use this ab wheel with my clients and it's by far the best one I've reviewed. The tread is wider and larger than many models, helping beginners master ab wheel rollouts more easily. The wheel even has built-in resistance and ergonomic, angled handles to activate your arms and shoulders. The carbon steel spring provides roll-back support to help you master the move. It's a total steal at just $30, which is 25% off.

Yes4All Slam Ball was $34 now $26 @ Amazon
Transform your strength training and ab workouts using a slam ball. These heavy balls test arm, shoulder and grip strength and can be used in place of dumbbells for a tougher workout. Harder to hold and control, slam balls can replace weights for moves like slams, overhead squats and Russian twists. Famous for building core strength and explosive power, you can save 26% on this popular model for a limited time.
