Standing Wheel Rollout
The Standing Wheel Rollout is an exercise that targets the core muscles, particularly the abs and lower back. It involves standing upright while holding a wheel or roller and rolling it forward and backward while maintaining a stable core and avoiding excessive arching of the back. This exercise can be challenging and requires proper form and technique to avoid injury.
