Awesome Ab Exercise!
I’ve been burning the midnight oil (literally!) working on a cool new project. More on that in a couple weeks.
My own training has taken a hit because of that, which sucks big time – but that’s the price you pay when you’re busy creating wicked content through sleepless nights.
I did, however, manage to come up with an awesome new ab exercise.
I had seen some peeps doing fallouts on the TRX on Youtube, but couldn’t find anyone doing them on rings. So I decided to be the first.
This is basically a standing ab wheel performed on rings. I do think the rings make the movement slightly easier, since they hang in the air, and thus provide less friction than an ab wheel rolling on the floor.
Obviously, this is a fairly advanced core exercise. Just as you wouldn’t jump straight into doing standing ab wheels, you gotta work your way up to ring fallouts over time.
I first tried this exercise about a year or two ago – and completely bombed. I couldn’t even straighten out my arms with the rings at hip level.
But I’ve been hitting the abs in training with laser-like focus recently, hammering dragonflags, bodysaws and various ring exercises, so I thought I’d give these suckas a try again.
For those of you wondering, my progression scheme was extremely simple…
Dipped my toes in with the rings hanging at about upper thigh level a few weeks ago, and was surprised to see how easy it felt. Then I gradually lowered the rings a few inches every workout until I got all the way down to being parallel to the floor.
Put these bad boys in your bag of goodies and you’ll be one step closer to a core that’s not just all “show”, but 100% “go”.
