Fitness Move of the Week: Rolling Abs
Grab your mat and get ready to roll. The Rolling Abs exercise fires up and tones all the core muscles. It’s not for the faint-at-heart because you must be comfortable with moving with momentum, backwards. Ready? Set. Roll!
- Stand with the feet together and arms reaching in front of you. Squat all the way down, and when your butt touches the floor, roll back, reaching your arms behind your head.
- Roll onto your upper back, letting your straight legs come high over your hips and into the air to create enough momentum to roll forward.
- Keep rolling forward, bringing your heels as close to your butt as you can while connecting your feet to the floor. Reach our arms forward to come back into a low squat to rise to standing. Use your hands to push up off the floor, if needed.
- Think of it as a seesaw. If you’re having trouble making it to the floor, roll back with more momentum.
