Not to pin one job on another, but when it comes to building a 6 pack, (while protecting your back), the captain’s seat is always there.

“Also called the Roman Chair, the captain’s chair is a tool that you will see standing against a wall somewhere in many gyms,” said Michael Wittig, ISSA expert trainer. “It looks like a high chair with armrests, but there’s no seat, and they’ll usually have dip bars attached to the handrests.”

For those who want to build an impressive midsection, the captain’s chair is a tool that allows you to hit all the angles of your abdominal region while keeping your back health in check. So, if you’re struggling with lower back issues or looking for killer abs, this machine is for you.

“The captain’s chair strengthens your back, reduces the chances of injury and isolates the rectus abdominis, obliques, and hip flexors,” says Wittig. “It allows people without the ability to perform basic exercises from a hanging position, and it is suitable for people of all ages from young to old.”

When a captain’s chair is used as part of a person’s regular training program, Wittig explains that it can strengthen the core, improve posture, and reduce lower back pain.

On that note, if you’re looking to build a strong core, here’s your guide to using the Captain’s Chair. But before you try a side note; some people may not have the upper hand to hold themselves in the captain’s chair. “If you’re in doubt about your strength level, make sure you have something when you train,” warns Wittig.

How to Use the Captain’s Chair

Proper form is important when using any equipment and helps you not only avoid unnecessary injuries but also allows you to get the most out of your training. Here, Wittig shows you how to best get into the captain’s chair in the right way so you can reap all the benefits of the next workout.

  2. Brace yourself in place with your back and shoulders.
