Spec Sheet: Proformance Plus Ab / Back (PPD-805)


The TuffStuff Proformance Plus Abdominal / Back (PPD-805) is a versatile, 2-in-1 machine for training your entire core.  The term “core” has become a trendy way to refer mostly to abdominal training in recent years, when in reality the core, or midsection, is the entire center of the body, including both the abdominal and lower back musculature.  Without a strong core, front and back, all efforts at building strength and power are futile.  The core transfers power between the upper body and lower body.  If this link in the chain is weak, then proper power transfer cannot occur.

The Proformance Plus Abdominal / Back is a great core strengthening machine.  With an adjustable pivot arm and foot support, the PPD-805 allows multiple starting positions and supports proper positioning during both ab and back exercises.
