    Dude, I really can't stand a lot of what he writes, haha. Although to be fair, it's not him I take issue with, but the current generation of kids that read like 1 book of his and think it's the ONLY way to train.

    I end up recommending it because, unlike most books on the topic, it doesn't make the veins on my forehead throb in outrage. :smile: That said, my own routine is not his, nor the newly popular 5x5, nor the diktat of the crossfit bot nor...

    Yeah, he goes into good detail on the movements. What amazes me is the people that claim to have read the book, and still go around screaming "If it's not an ATG squat, it's not a squat!" when the man himself doesn't advocate going ATG, haha.

    So, I'll indeed work on ab wheels, then. Watched a few pics and videos of this exercise already. - Intrigues me. Thanks, muddy!

    @Emevas & Jack: :5opera::5opera::5opera:

    ...Means, you're right, and it's cool that you keep answering my n00b questions.

    I am in good shape, and I train a lot, but I have no freaking idea about training lore,
    and few people even on the web can give comprehensive advice. I have read a few books, but most of them tend to contradict one another.
    Without bullshido, I'd be pretty much lost. (Gotta really get me such a supporting member account some day, to repay for that help.)

    One of my buddies in the pros recommended the ab wheel to me last spring. I can affirm that it is tremendously challenging, so start slow and progress gradually.

    Best thing about the ab wheel is you can find one at a garage sale for like $1

    Wooow, tried the excercise yesterday night for the first time.

    Pretty much the most demanding thing I ever done.

    Today, my whole body hurts, but I might well go on with this.

    (Since I didn't have a wheel, I used a wall to push me away.)

    How does the abwheel effect the lower back, does it put a lot pressure on the discs? Or is it more like divebombers/hindu push ups?
    Sometimes you lose and sometimes the other guy wins.

    At this point I don't owe anybody an explenation.

    Schools I trained at:
    Lotus Club Cetepe Liberdade Sao Paulo
    Renzo Gracie NYC
    New York Combat Sambo

    If you do it right (read: tensile load across your abs rather than compression across your back), it shouldn't.

    Aside: On Sunday, I saw a guy at the gym using a barbell with plates as an improvised ab wheel - seemed to work pretty well so long as the plates can rotate.
