Barbell Abdominal Rollout
In this lesson you will learn how to train your abs with the barbell abdominal rollout. This exercise trains the entire abdominals, the obliques and also the back muscles. You can do this exercise with a straight barbell or with an EZ-bar. Just make sure you wrists feel comfortable. Don't do this exercise if you are having back, elbow or shoulder problems. At the beginning, you can do kneeling barbell abdominal rollouts, which are a lot easier. If you are into gymnastics, try to work yourself up to fully extended barbell rollouts (see illustration).
