The Ab Slide is a great way to tone lots of different muscles. It is not as easy or simple to do as it looks. It works a lot of muscles and requires coordination.
What makes the ab slider exercise moderately difficult is the amount of friction when you start the foot to move towards yourself is at its maximum. This is because you need to place significant force downwards to control your movements and avoid to go everywhere.
