Ab Wheel Rollouts—the primary exercise performed with an ab wheel—are a form of anti-extension core training. As you roll forward, your abs work overtime to keep your back from arching into extension.
Rollouts train your abs the way the muscles are designed to function. The abs aren't meant to flex the torso, or bring the shoulders to the hips like during a Crunch or Sit-Up. What they actually do is prevent you from going into extension.
The concept is similar to a Plank, but Rollouts are much more difficult—which is why they're sometimes considered dangerous. And there's some validation to the claim. If you can't hold a Plank for more than a few seconds, or you can only do a few Push-Ups without your back sagging, these are indications that your core isn't very strong.
If you fall into this category, your back will extend during an Ab Wheel Rollout. This stresses your spine, and can cause some degree of lower-back pain or injury.
Ab Wheel Rollouts provide a better ab workout than traditional flexion exercises, creating stronger and more defined abs.
