Recommendations for performing exercises with the wheel

The first few sessions for beginners are difficult, therefore, in order not to overload the muscles, it is recommended to perform 5-10 approaches. To achieve the result, you need to do 3-5 times a week. After about 3-4 weeks you will already notice the effect of training. It is worth noting that the difficulty of performing exercises depends on the diameter of the roller. The smaller the size of the wheel, the more load you have on the muscles.

During the training it is important to observe the following rules:

  • breath control - to perform slopes or roll-ups necessary for inspiration, and to return to the initial position on exhalation;
  • before training it is recommended to do a short warm-up and 1-2 cardio exercises;
  • on the floor it is desirable to lay a mat to avoid pressure of the knees on the floor.

Classes with this sport equipment are not recommended for people with diseases of the spine and cardiovascular system, so consult a doctor before starting the workout.

The most effective and more or less feasible for an ordinary( unsportsmanlike) girl is the sixth exercise. At runtime, all muscle groups of the press are involved. The dream of a flat tummy can very quickly come true if you do it right. Do not forget to eat properly 🙂


Exercises for the press with the wheel, although heavy, but very effective and you can really achieve good results in a short time. I know this not by hearsay, as I often do at home with such a roller for the press. By the way, in the article I found some new exercises for myself, so I take myself to the note, only for this it is necessary to purchase a roller with leg fasteners.


How difficult it is at first to cope with the wheel. More often it coped with me).But the results of such exercises are simply amazing. And it's much more interesting to deal with than just rocking the press lying down.
