What if I do not have a stability ball for stability ball roll ups or roll outs?
What is stability ball curl ups are too difficult for me?
What if I do not have a stability ball for stability ball roll outs?
What if I do not have an ab wheel for ab wheel exercises?
The barbell rollout is a perfect substitition exercise for either of those exercises. It also make a nice progression as you can make it more difficult than stability ball rollouts if you go out further.
If you have a physical limitation, you can usually work around the issue. Remember to let pain be your guide, if it hurts- stop!
Here are just a few examples of work arounds to new or existing injuries-
- If your wrist is injured and needs a work around, do planks or side planks on your elbows instead, video here
- For an ankle injury, you can do planks on your knees instead. On roll ups, you would also move the ball or towel to your knees. See above for video example.
