    Ab Wheel Exercise suggestions

    Looking for specific ways to use one of these, mine was from a charity shop so came with no instructions. Internet been no help so far so thought I'd ask here. Maybe see if anyone else has something apart from the standard stuff.
    Best I've come up with so far was doing pressups with it.

    I'm told it's easier to start by doing this exercise on your knees.

    Yep, I will take the feminine privilege and start from my knees. That looks nasty! But great fun though. Thanks.

    No problems. I was considering buying one myself.

    Uh... I think this is the primary use of the ab-wheel, which surprises me that you can't find info on what to do with it. Did you try googling 'ab-wheel' or youtubing 'ab-wheel'? There's some good videos floating around.

    Googled and didn't find anything interesting, will try youtube now the broadband is running again. There's ways of doing pressups on it, that will teach you balance if nothing else will!

    Your internet-fu sucks bro. Anyways, sticks to the basics. Using the ab wheel is pretty simple. If you are new to it, you should start with the knees down:

    I'm pretty sure you've seen this before, starting with the knees off the ground:

    Now, a word of caution. Just because you can do 15+ with your knees on the ground, that doesn't mean you can do them with the knees off the ground. Both are different exercises. Don't let your ego get the better of you and try to do the harder exercise without first warming up or w/o building the necessary strenght.

    I like to do the ab wheel after doing front squats or barbell standing military presses. I feel the ab wheel hits my already warmed up abs best that way.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    That's an interesting one, which parts of the chest/abs does it work specifically?
