Muscles Worked & Benefits

The Roman Chair works your upper abs by positioning the body at a 70 degree angle. By raising your torso as far forward as possible in this exercise you should feel your abdominals completely contract. This will help you to achieve the best results. Intensity can be heightened by holding a weight against your chest while performing the exercise.

Exercise Type: Multi-joint.

Exercise Workout & Technique

  • Take position in the Roman Chair apparatus, anchoring your feet under the supports and folding your arms in front of your chest.
  • Ensure that your abs are tight and bring yourself back before you become parallel, inhaling as you do so.
  • Now exhale, crunching forward with your abs.
  • Repeat this exercise for the desired amount of reps, then rest.

Tips & Safety

  • Ensure that you do not go below a parallel position in order to keep your abs in a constant state of strain.
  • You should feel the ab muscles crunch down on the way down.

Training Alternatives

Change the angle of the exercise by placing a block under the chair for variety in training. To increase resistance add a free-weight and hold it across your chest as your perform the movement.
