Dr. Darden or anyone else with experience,
Upon reading The Complete Book of Nautilus Training by Michael D. Wolf, Ph.D., the description for the Nautilus AB-1 (Clamshell crunch machine) is less than flattering. The book goes on to state that the handgrips, narrow seat pad, and full range of motion make the machine less than ideal for training abdominals. Thus, I was curious if anyone has a more favorable opinion of the first gen AB-1. Thank you.
