How to: Ab Roller
Primary Muscles Used:Abs
Exercise Families:Trunk Anti-Extension
- Begin in a kneeling position at the back of a yoga mat, resting one hand on each end of the ab wheel handles directly below your chest. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Exhale. While maintaining a neutral spine and stabilising through your abdominals, lean forward and allow the ab wheel to roll forwards, extending your arms out in front of you. Ensure that you only roll as far as you can while still maintaining your core and spinal alignment, to avoid placing excessive load on your lower back.
- Using your abdominals, pull the ab wheel backwards along the length of the mat to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
