Suspension Standing Ab Rollout

Suspension Standing Ab Rollout

The Suspension Standing Ab Rollout is a challenging exercise that targets the core muscles, specifically the abdominals. This exercise is perfect for those looking to strengthen their core, improve stability, and enhance overall functional fitness. The primary equipment required for this exercise is a suspension trainer. To perform the Suspension Standing Ab Rollout, you will need to attach the suspension trainer handles to a sturdy anchor point, making sure they are at waist height. Stand facing the anchor point with your feet hip-width apart and your arms extended in front of you, holding onto the handles. Engage your core muscles by pulling your belly button towards your spine. From here, begin rolling the suspension trainer handles forward, allowing your body to pivot at the hips while maintaining a straight line from head to toe. Keep your abdominals engaged throughout the movement and be cautious not to overextend your lower back. Only roll forward as far as you can maintain proper form and control. The Suspension Standing Ab Rollout not only targets the rectus abdominis (the superficial abs) but also engages the obliques, transverse abdominis, and other stabilizing muscles of the core. This exercise helps improve core strength, stability, and overall balance. It also translates into enhanced performance in various sports and daily activities that require a strong core. Remember to start with a weight or resistance level appropriate for your fitness level. As you become more proficient, you can increase the difficulty by adjusting the angles, range of motion, or adding resistance bands. As with any exercise, proper form and technique are crucial to avoid injury and maximize the benefits. So, challenge your core with the Suspension Standing Ab Rollout and work towards a stronger and more stable torso.


  • Start by attaching a suspension trainer to a sturdy anchor point at chest height.
  • Stand facing away from the anchor point with your feet hip-width apart.
  • While engaging your core muscles and maintaining a neutral spine, hold the handles of the suspension trainer with both hands and extend your arms straight in front of you at shoulder level.
  • Slowly lower your body forward by rolling the suspension trainer away from you, maintaining control throughout the movement.
  • Continue rolling out until your body is fully extended and your arms are above your head.
  • Pause briefly in this extended position, and then engage your core muscles to roll back to the starting position, keeping your body in a straight line.
  • Repeat for the recommended number of repetitions.

Tips & Tricks

  • Engage your core throughout the entire movement to maintain stability.
  • Focus on maintaining a neutral spine by avoiding excessive arching or rounding of your back.
  • Gradually increase the difficulty by rolling the suspension straps further away from your body.
  • Breathe out as you roll forward and maintain a controlled breathing pattern.
  • Keep your shoulders down and away from your ears to avoid unnecessary tension.
  • Start with smaller movements and gradually progress to full range of motion.
  • Use your abdominal muscles to initiate the movement rather than relying solely on arm strength.
  • Maintain a slow and controlled pace to maximize the effectiveness of the exercise.
  • If you experience any lower back discomfort, scale back the movement and focus on engaging your core more.
  • Consult with a fitness professional if you're unsure about your form or any modifications you may need.
