AbMat vs. Rolled Towel

So is the Abmat really worth the $29 versus just using a rolled towel?

Or are the Abmat manufacturers secretly monitoring this website and generating a false interest in their product and getting us all to spend $29 on a silly abmat....

No really, I am being serious, Abmat vs. Rolled towel, what's the benefit of Abmat?

I've never tried a towel but there are a lot of good ways to do the exact same thing. You can occasionally get these for $9.99.

Re: AbMat vs. Rolled Towel

Yeh I figured after I posted my thread there was a ton of stuff out there already. This was kind of a joke thread between me and a friend at work. I basically bet him that within about 10 minutes at least 3 hardcore crossfitters would reply on here trying to defend the abmat...

I think I lost though because I only got two reply's so far. Frank, who I can't tell if he is defending the abmat or not, and Caleb is pretty much saying there are other things besides an abmat....

Re: AbMat vs. Rolled Towel

Frank is not defending the abmat, he is chastising you for being lazy.

Personally, i prefer the abmat by a long shot. It feels nicer, keeps its form, is way more stable, has two different angles depending on the person using it.

Basically i dont see any reason NOT to spend the 29..

Re: AbMat vs. Rolled Towel

Gabriel, Where were you 20 minutes ago.. you would have helped me win my bet.

Anyways, you all don't have to respond anymore. I'm getting an abmat anyways just because I am an equipment whore and I got Damon over in Utah trading me for some O'Lift DVD's. My buddy at work was just giving me a hard time about it and I was telling him how the crazies at CrossFit will likely defend the abmat to there graves...hahaha

MODERATORS please move this to Stuff and Nonsense quickly. I could open up a whole can of worms with this thread. No need to waste peoples time in the "Equipment" Section.
