The stability ball roll is similar to the ab wheel exercise. It is a great alternative to traditional ab exercises. It is unique in that it is done from a kneeling position. It also requires a great deal of strength in the back (latissimus dorsi) and triceps muscles. An exercise mat is recommended.

Begin with the knees on the floor and the hands resting on the ball. Roll the ball forward while keeping your elbows locked into position. Interlacing the fingers (palms touching) will provide added stability. In the full roll-out position, the lower back should be flat, butt down. Exhale when the body is completely flat. The arms should travel on top of the ball. As the ball goes forward, the abs will contract. Return the ball to the starting position. Keep the abs tight when doing so. Repeat the exercise.
