Kneeling ab rollout

Level

Outer Unit

Variations

  • The assisted kneeling ab rollout is a beginner exercise to strengthen the abs and core. The assisted kneeling ab rollout minimizes the eccentric demand to decelerate the movement and is therefore a good first step in the progression.

  • The kneeling ab rollout - knees on box is an intermediate exercise to strengthen the abs and core. By placing the knees on a box, a higher percentage of body weight is shifted towards the arms. This makes it slightly harder to decelerate the movement.

  • The exercise can be made much more challenging by adding resistance. The resisted kneeling ab rollout is an advanced core and abdominal exercise. This exercise is the last step in the progression before moving to a standing ab rollout.

  • The kneeling MB rollout is the same exercise as the kneeling ab rollout, but performed with a medicine ball instead of the ab wheel. This exercise is suitable for intermediate and advanced fitness levels.

  • The kneeling straight-arm SB rollout is an intermediate level exercise to strengthen the abs and core. In this exercise the rollout is performed using a stability ball.
