Full Extension Sit-Ups, Fully Protected Tailbone
The Wise Crack AbMat is exclusive to Rogue Fitness, and marks yet another game-changing innovation in fundamental core training from the makers of the original AbMat and AbMat Pro. The origin of this product comes direct from the CrossFit community itself, as athlete/trainer Bonnie Clark first reached out to us with her own variation on the AbMat design. From there, we took Bonnie's ideas directly to the team at AbMat, tweaked the blueprint, and created the Wise Crack—another must-have for the gym, garage, office… anywhere you have a flat surface and some time to spare.
For many athletes, it’s not abdominal pain that limits their number of sit-ups; it’s literally a pain in the backside. Even a quality sit-up pad can leave the tailbone vulnerable to friction against the floor as your body extends and contracts, leading to skin damage, soreness and bruising. The Wise Crack AbMat solves this problem by including two seat flaps extending from the base of the cushion. These padded legs create a “channel” or “crack” that suspends the tail bone during the movement, eliminating any pressure on that area.
When an athlete sits on the extended “legs” of the Wise Crack AbMat, his or her bodyweight also simultaneously counters any unwanted movement of the cushion during training, preventing sliding and keeping the mat completely stabilized for a safe, efficient sit-up.
Like every pad with the AbMat name, the Wise Crack is contoured to tilt the spine and enable a full extension of the abdominals at the beginning of a sit-up—not possible on a flat surface alone. It also stabilizes the pelvis as you rise up, allowing the abs to fully contract. The result is a more efficient and complete core training of the abdominal, oblique, and back muscles—without a dependence on momentum.
The Wise Crack AbMat is manufactured in America, using a high-quality, low compression set foam with a durable, non-slip vinyl exterior. This construction enables comfortable stability for the pelvis and ample padding for the spine. It’s also lightweight, portable, and easy to use on any flat surface, indoors or out.
This design is particularly unique in that it was developed exclusively for Rogue customers, adapting an original concept by a member of our community, CrossFitter Bonnie Clark. Each Wise Crack features a black and red color scheme with Rogue and AbMat branding, and its overall shape mirrors the legs and posterior of the user—easy for athletes of any age, size, and experience level to quickly figure out. Rogue is also proud to offer other AbMat products, including the original model, and AB-2 Firm AbMat.
