With the confusion that seems to surround spinal flexion, it was interesting to see you mention giving the Pavelizer a go. You mentioned giving it a chance………….I’m curious what made you experiment with it, and what you would consider a reason to not be done with it or even consider including it (and who would even be in the mix to have a legitimate reason to consider using it).
I am mostly interested in it because my gym has one sitting in the corner along with an AbMat and some other miscellaneous stuff. I occasionally see a gentleman using the Pavelizer with the AbMat and performing a crunch-style movement, but I’ve never gravitated over there myself. In fact, I have mostly steered clear of flexion for some time now (not sure if I am paranoid or not).
Just curious if you have any additional thoughts to share since the Pavelizer was mentioned by name.
