Teaser on the Reformer. The box adds another level of difficulty – it takes you from full extension of the spine into full flexion of the spine. This is very challenging, so even if you don’t have a reformer, try doing teaser on top of a box or step bench to add another layer of difficulty to this already challenging exercise.
Teaser is by far the best exercise for your abs. Studies have shown that it is 39% more effective than a regular abdominal crunch to tone your rectus abdominus.
Teaser is also – ready for this – 266% more effective for targeting your external oblique muscles than a regular sit up. You are literally pulling your body off the floor with your abdominals!
Teaser also burns about 6 calories per minute. Compare that to 7.5 calories per minute for a burpee. Impressive!
This is why I love Teaser!
