Abdominal Training using the Wheel

People always ask us for abdominal exercises. Well, here you go then. For less than ten dollars you can purchase a wheel and when performed properly, your ABS will get stronger and will get more toned ( I hate that word). Check out as Yoana and I show you how to perform the "evil wheel" the correct way.

Also keep in mind that no exercise will melt off fat from the midsection if you are wolfing down too many calories on a daily basis. Long term you must cut your calories and optimize the quality of food you take it. Remember the term, "Junk in, Junk out." If you eat junk food just remind yourself that the cells in your body will be replaced with the food that you are eating. Do you really want your eyeball tissue and liver cells to made from Krispy Creme doughnuts and Big Macs?

Great video! In powerlifting, your abs can not be strong enough. I am learning to hate isolated ab exercises less (only because I want a bigger deadlift). Thanks for reminding me about the ab wheel!

I hate the word "Tone" too. My other hated word, "Core".

Fawn, thanks! You probably don't need the wheel with your strength levels!

But at least you have a TONED CORE

:)

Great tips Franzy! I personally want my eyeballs and tissues to be made out of Coldstone Birthday Cake Remix and Cheescake!

I love my ab wheel. Well maybe love isn't the right word but you surely know what I mean:)

Sandy,

Of course I know what you mean.

Those wheels are very effective!

Best,

Franz

I am so glad I just saw this video as there are some definite tweaks to my ab wheel roll-out form to incorporate now.

One of the things I like to add to this exercise is a 5-second hold in the full extension before pulling back up. I also have the tip of my nose touch the floor as I'm holding.
