AB Wheel - Inexpensive Workout

It's that time of year where we all want to get cut up for the summer! But how can we reach that goal of "BEACH BOD" without all of the crazy routines?

As a child, I'd watch my mom work out on this Ab wheel (single wheel), and she would do it every day! She was super dedicated to this thing. I then noticed a few weeks in that it was really making a difference. Now, years later, I've decided to give it a try!

What does the Ab Wheel do?

It primarily tones and strengthens core muscles - abdominal, obliques, and back. This wheel is normally for intermediate to advance fitness users, but there are modifications for beginners. There are a number of exercises that fit your ab strength.

How to use the Ab Wheel:

Place your knees on the floor, put your legs together, and place the ab wheel about a foot from you.

Slowly roll the wheel forward keeping your arms straight as you roll forward until your chest almost touches the floor, then reverse the move and use your abs to pull yourself back to the start.

There are many other ways to use this wheel, but this is the simplest, yet effective exercise, especially for beginners.

Here's a new Ab Wheel that I just bought, and I love it! The dual wheel is a bit wider than most ab wheels, and it is very easy to navigate. PLUS it comes with a knee pad!


Happy Working Out!

Until Next Time...
