Ask the Expert: Roll Up

Q: I have a few clients that pull to one side when they are doing Roll Up or Rolling Like a Ball. Is there a prop you would suggest to help with this?


The Roll Up and Rolling Like a Ball are challenging exercises. Your client may or may not be able to fully execute these exercises depending on body proportion, lower back flexibility and hip flexor length and strength.

Try incorporating the Flex-Band into Half Roll Up or Half Roll Back on the Mat, while you continue to cue and encourage the client to utilize the obliques and rectus abdominus. You could also try Roll Down on the Cadillac to help facilitate abdominal strength without allowing the hip flexors to extend the lumbar spine and encourage balance throughout the obliques and abs.
