The ab wheel is one of the best ab workouts you’ll ever experience.
The ab wheel is not only effective, but it’s affordable and convenient. For less than $10 and only a couple of minutes a day you can be well on your way to perfectly-sculpted rock hard abs.
The genius behind the ab wheel is it’s simplicity.
Unlike other ab workouts, you don’t need to be in great shape to start using the device. You control the pace and resistance level with your own body weight and balance.
How to use the Ab Wheel
- Be sure to stretch first
- Get on all fours in a comfortable position with knees about shoulder width apart. Preferably on a hard surface, (but the ab wheel can be used on carpet too). If you find this position hurts your knees we recommend you use a pillow, folded up blanket or even an inexpensive stretching mat or yoga mat.
- Grab the contoured ab wheel handles with both hands on opposite sides of the wheel.
- Slowly lunge forward until you feel your resistance in your abs and as you core begins to tighten. At this point go just a little further (only a few inches) then, pause for one or two seconds. Finally, slowly return to starting position.
- Beginners should only go a few feet before recoiling to starting position. As you gain experience and strength, increase the distance.

Ab wheel tips and pointers:
- Use your ab muscles and core to do the work! Concentrate on your abs during both the extension and return
- Keep your entire core tight during the brief pause at full extension. The recoil process is not the end of the exercise, it is as important as the extension process for fat burning
- Don’t cheat and use your arms to do the work, a few good isolated core-crunching reps is better than several poorly executed reps
- Don’t overdo it! As time goes on and with ab wheel practice, your core will gain strength, you will lose weight and it will become easier
- Experienced ab wheel users extend fully until their body is almost parallel with the ground. Angling reps a few degrees to left and right will help target the oblique muscles
- Cross your legs or keep them apart during ab wheel reps, do whatever feels most comfortable for you

Simple 3-minute ab wheel workout
Complete this simple 3-minute ab wheel workout just once per day and watch the fat melt away.
- Mark a spot on the floor or your mat to position your knees for every workout. Then place a mark or piece of tape on the floor a few feet away from your knees. This will be your distance success marker. Put another mark or piece of tape a few inches past your original mark to set as a distance goal marker. Try to make it to the next goal/marker every two weeks. If you are traveling or switch locations for ab wheel workouts, you can use a yard stick, tape measure or any other measuring device to monitor distance. The key to effective ab wheel workouts is consistency, repetition and intensity.
- Do 3 sets of 10 reps with ab wheel at a comfortable, but slightly challenging distance.
- As you lose weight, gain abdominal and core strength, extend your range of motion. Try and work up to 3 sets of 15 reps, then 20. Once you have mastered this sets of reps, challenge yourself to doing consecutive ab wheel reps for 1 full minute without break, then 2, then 3.

killer ab workout
I tried the ab wheel and thought it was pretty easy, that is until the next day when I was so sore I could hardly get out of bed! I kept on doing it for a couple of weeks and before I knew it, I had lost a few lbs and more importantly I had dropped one pant size. I take it with me on business trips and do a few minutes worth of sets in my hotel room when I wake up or on my lunch break. It's a great little workout device that will challenge you as much as you want.
