Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and PUMATRAC Global fitness curator Anthony McClain said, "I am a huge fan of doing this exercise with an ab wheel specifically because it allows you to target all portions of your abdominals instead of just an isolated segment. Form is tremendously important. Extend with control and practice building upon that controlled range of motion."
- Kneel with the wheel in front of you. Keeping your arms straight and core tight, push them out, rolling the ab wheel as far away as you can without breaking your form.
- Hold this plank-like position for two to three seconds.
- Slowly return to the starting position by contracting your abs and rolling the wheel back toward your knees. That completes one rep.
- Anthony recommends performing these until failure (once form is compromised), or for three sets of 10 down the middle. He also suggests experimenting with "doing reps in multiple directions to emphasize the recruitment of the obliques," so five to the right, five down the middle, and five to the left.
