Using the captain's chair, you can perform a variety of exercises to help you strengthen those abdominal muscles. These exercises include the basic leg raise exercise, captain chair's kicks, and straight leg lifts.

SOURCE: Can I get the same workout using a pull up bar as I would with a captains chair? They are cheaper, and if I can derive the same results, I don't see the need to spend a lot of money.

Although you are working out the same muscles, and the movement is similar, the captains chair is far superior. The captains chair forces you upper body to be still while raising your legs, thus allowing you to properly contract your abdominal muscles. Another added bonus using the captains chair is that your back is completely supported throughout the exercise.

Can the two middle row captain chairs be switched out for a 3 seater bench in a 2007 Kia Sedona?


If you have third row. Look at the slots in the floor. If the outer slots are the same distance apart, front and back, then you can. Some vans you can, but some the captains chair are spaced further apart.
