my dad shows up with an ab slide that he says he just had lying around and wasn't using. i don't know whether to believe him... whether true or not, this is a not-so-subtle hint that he thinks i need to work off this pregnancy flab in the belly region, which is ANNOYING : coming from him, but unfortunatley i happen to agree.

so... what do i do with this thing? and how do i know i'm doing it right?

Is the ab-slide the thing with a cushion for your knees and then a piece that you balance on, then roll out and back on it?
If that's the name of it, my trainer has me working out on it at the gym. It is part of my ab-circuit. I don't know the name of it though.
If it's the same thing it's really easy to use.
You sit on your knees, graps the handles, roll out so you are in push-up position on your knees and forearms. Hold it there for a couple of seconds, then roll back to your start position where you are sitting back on your knees. Repeat. Very simple, but the key is to hold the push-up position (this kills my abs).
