The Ironman ATIS 4000 Inversion Table is a combination of inversion table, for relieving back pain, and AB/CORE workout training equipment. It’s designed both for people who suffer from back pain and those who want to improve their core fitness levels.

The ATIS range of AB and CORE training tables, which includes the ATIS 1000 AB, has been developed by Ironman specifically for this purpose with the 4000 being one of the most popular models. The ATIS 4000 AB has the ability to lock at various angles allowing the user to have the additional benefit of AB training while, at the same time, inverting will provide effective back stretching and relaxation.

This piece of equipment allows the user to isolate the abdominal muscles more effectively than bench training. This table is comfortable and the perfect piece of training equipment for those who, in addition to stretching, want to develop their mid-section strength.

Assembly

Average assembly time is about one hour and instructions are included as are the tools you will need to put it all together. The device is a little heavy so, if you can get someone else to assist you it would help.

If you have trouble bending down then you should be able to use this quite easily. All you do is step onto the platform, push down the ratchet lock and that’s all there is to it.

To get out, press down firmly, push towards your leg and then push out.

The “Comforter” ankle holders prevent any pinch point pressure while inverting and there is an extra-large foot platform for easy on and off.

Inverting

ironman atis 4000 invertingThe Ironman ATIS 4000 Inversion Table is very easy to use.  To invert, you simply rest your body against the nylon backrest, put your feet into the ergonomically molded ankle cushions and then simply lift your arms gradually over your head. As your arms raise, your body gradually inverts to the pre-set angle.

It comes with inverted hand grips which provides for maximum stretching while inverting and also extra-long safety handles which allow an easy return to an upright position. If for some reason, you cannot return to your starting position, you can use the safety handle.

The “Smart Gear” mechanism allows the user to lock the table at 10 different angles.  This prevents any “free falling” while inverting and also allows the user to “lock” the table at a 90 degree inverting position.

For the user’s comfort, safety and additional support, the Ironman 4000 features a nylon backrest.
