Unfortunately, there is no exercise chart and not even a hint of how to use this. I had to go online and search around You Tube and other websites. That was ridiculous. But other than that. . this is a very well put together piece of equipment. I am so glad I did not get the plain Ab roller (plain wheel) nor the slightly "thinner" version of this device. This device WORKS but YOU must be consistent, disciplined and motivated to use it EVERYDAY otherwise it will become another fancy doorjamb. You will be extremely sore the first two weeks. . . Very pleased with this item.
My wife can use them at the lower setting. Nice, simple, comfortable design. And I really like that it is adjustable.
I look forward to my workouts!. I get a great workout with the OYO LE. I enjoy using it and feel really good afterwards. Amazing how the tension feels, how light weight it is and how sturdy the construction is.
SizingThe most important points about this are to order one size up from what the guide tells you. This is not because I am an inexperienced swimmer, I used to swim competitively. I know Aikikis are supposed to be tight to reduce drag. I am 5'8" 155 lbs and I am fit (read I have 6 pack). I'm saying this to show off and also so you know what my point of view is. I do squats and deadlift, and my thighs are naturally pretty large. I think the 8% body fat I have is gathered on my innerthighs. I wear levi's 513's size 30 with the waist being perfect (read I can put 2 fingers in the waistline snugly), but the thighs are a little constrictive. So my thighs ARE a tad larger than average. I ordered the size 32 of this Aikiki. A little difficult to put on and that put my mind into already thinking it was too tight. Waist was perfect, don't really need the drawstring. My buddies down there were nested and protected by the liner; comfortable. The only thing was the leg openings seemed a tad too tight. There was a SLIGHT sausage effect that I only noticed from staring in the mirror and feeling around my thighs. But again, my thighs are a littler larger than average. My friend who swims on the Macau national team told me that it would loosen a bit in water. I trusted him and cut the tag. I am writing this after a swim session and he was right. the Aikiki was really comfortable and I think it is a perfect fit. Materialpolyester PBT blend seems the most long lasting on the market. They stretch, but it is not a super easy stretch like you get with spandex compression shorts. Material seems really durable. Aikiki logo is embroidered which is nice. CutThe square cut is perfect for me. The leg openings do ride up slightly on the thigh. But I wear boxer briefs and this is a familiar and actually comfortable feeling. More modest than a brief Aikiki, but still lets me swim freely.
These jersey short combo look and feel great. They have a high quality feel to them and the padding is perfect for me. I would love to order more color schemes from them as well. The size were a bit off but customer service took care of that right away.
