    Hi

    Used them at the gym. They work but are not for the average infomercial watcher. You have to have strong abs already and have good form for most of the exercises.

    The ones at the gym I go to also have foot straps on them, so you can crawl with them attached to your feet. you crawl in a plank position 10 yards forward , 10 yards back. Basically a walking plank position. arms walk and legs are on the wheel, core stays rigid(Power wheel crawls)

    Other one is to roll out keeping back and arms completely straight. go from 90 to 180 degrees and back again. Power wheel rollouts is what the gym I go to calls it.

    Also do pike ups using them

    They work really well just becare not to extend-out to far! This can be a real Back killer!

    The guys are right...
    The ab wheel can be a very good tool but
    if your core muscles (Your abs and lower back) are weak to begin with it will cause some really bad lower back problems
