  3. Tense the abs and slowly roll the barbell back towards your knees.

​Ab Rollout Tips:

  1. Keep your arms and back straight at all times.
  2. Do the exercise slowly, and concentrate on using your abdominal muscles to pull the barbell back towards you.
  3. For extra intensity barbell rollouts can be done standing.
