Abdominal Barbell Rollouts

How to do the Abdominal Barbell Rollouts

To begin Abdominal Barbell Rollouts kneel in a pushup position with your hands shoulder width (or wider) on a barbell. With your arms almost locked out on the bar push the bar ahead of you so that your body drops to the floor. Before your body is touching the ground return to the starting position. This is a VERY difficult abdominal exercise.

If you find this too easy raise your knees above the ground into a full pushup position and push the weight out away from your body.
