Im going insane over this
how the FUCK do you use an ab roller? Im making sure to bend my back up with a posterior pelvic tilt
I roll it out and I can really feel it in my core, but as I roll more in I feel less and less tension on my core, plus these feel too easy to do with my weak core
Im told to avoid using my arms or hips, but my arms and straight and I dont think its humanly possible to change the angle of my arms without using them, and I dont know how to tell whether Im using my hips or not

    If you do this from your knees instead of standing up and doing it from your feet you are DYEL

    >I can really feel it in my core
    then you are doing them correctly
    >Im told to avoid using my arms or hips
    you SHOULD be using your arms to bring yourself back into position
    >I dont know how to tell whether Im using my hips or not
    it's simple, if you "push" yourself back into position with your butt instead of relying 100% on your arms, then you're doing it wrong.
    also don't stretch all the way if you stop feeling your core, you're only increasing your risk of shoulder injury if you go all the way.

    It’s a meme exercise that mostly works lats and not abs. If you want to strengthen your abs do weighted situps instead of meme women tier exercises.

      The exercise above is showing it as a lat focused one. You are supposed to start with your abs crunched and then release out and then not using your shoulders/arms but crunch your abs to roll back. You'll know you're hitting it just right when you can't get out of bed

    What's the best weighted ab exercise that doesn't put my spine in flexion? Long lever planks?

    you don't... those are just for people who want attention, like the ppl who load 20 plates into the leg press and do an inch of rom.

    Ab-related question, is something like this worthwhile or is it just a meme? Too much volume? Too little weight?

      Do you really want to do like 300 reps every time you work abs?

      Just add some sets of heavy cable crunches, and a lot of compound movements you do will help your core as well

    If you have good posterior pelvic posture then you've fixed the hard part.
    Make sure your shoulders are fully rounded/protracted.
    Once you reach full extension on your ab wheel (full extension being "as far as I can go without my pelvis or shoulders shifting), then make it an isometric. Hold the position for as long as you can, feeling and focusing on your pelvic and shoulder posture.

    Always flex your hamstrings so your hip flexors don't steal your gains.

    It's super hard if you do it right and only use your abs.

    I can't even do 5 with my abs, but if I use my gluteus and legs and chest I can easily do 20.

    It's like people telling you they're doing 60 push ups but they're actually doing 1/10 push up and nodding really hard

    Guy in your pic is doing the contraction wrong.
    You should not let your arse extend backwards / you should be crunching your abs so that you end up looking like an angry cat.

      Yeah

      A great way to fix execution is not focusing on how you look in he mirror or how your executing an exercise, but focusing on what muscles you flex and release. You'll keep your ass right naturally
