So I'm going to demonstrate how to do a standing ab wheel. This is a progression from a regular ab wheel exercise on your knees. So if you're not familiar with that, definitely master that. You can progress to a standing ab wheel. So what you're going to do is, you're going to start out standing up. You're going to lean over. I want you to hinge at your hips. The first thing you're going to do is allow your body to move with the wheel. So I'm going to demonstrate just kind of staying in a plane position.

If this is OK, you could extend your arms out further. As long as your lower back does not kick in. So if you start feeling in your lower back or you start arching in your lower back, then you went too far. So again, you're here. I'm on a stable surface, so this is a lot more difficult and challenging for me than normal plank.

And then I'm going to come back to start. So roll out as far as you can without the compensation of your lower back dropping or arching, and then come back up. Everyone's fitness level is going to be different, so if you're only able to go out as far out as I showed you, fine. You progress, you practice, and your range of motion will increase. And that's how you do a standing ab wheel.
