Building to the Ab Wheel Rollout: 2 Variations to Master the Ab Wheel
I have always been a fan of core training – during my playing days and now as a coach.
And, no, I’m not talking about sit-ups and crunches. (Alright, I’m sure there was a time when I would get down with some crunches, but my knowledge/approach has evolved.)
I think we can all agree there’s a ton of core exercises that give you way more bang for your buck than the traditional sit-ups and crunches. Reason being, everything in sport comes from the core. In soccer specifically, striking the ball, holding off defenders, sprinting/running – every movement that generates power starts with the core.
Therefore, if you don’t have a strong, stable core, you won’t be able to display the athleticism you have worked so hard to attain.
One of my favorite exercises to build this strength and stability is the ab wheel roll-out.
The ab wheel roll-out can be extremely challenging, and therefore it’s not an exercise I would recommend jumping right into.
That’s why in this week’s video I offer 2 variations + a bonus variation to help you build up to and eventually master this awesome exercise.
Also, listen to this song when you’re performing the roll-out – it’s scientifically proven that you’ll master it in half the time.
