Pike – targets core and chest. Lock feet into Power Wheel. On hands, roll your legs forward into pike position. Start with a bend in knees and progress to straight legs. For added difficulty, throw in a push-up between pikes.

 

Walks – targets chest, triceps and core. Lock feet into Power Wheel and walk for about 50 meters and progress to 100 meters. This exercise is advanced and will have you winded.

 

Leg Curls – targets hamstrings. Lock feet into Power Wheel. Lying on back, roll your legs in, performing a curl. Try to curl until the wheel hits your butt.

 

Roll-outs – targets abdominals. Using the handles, roll out the wheel until you feel a stretch in your abs. Roll back to starting position while trying to round your back. Start this exercise on your knees and progress to standing roll-outs.

 

A good reference book for Power wheel/ab wheel exercises is Ab Wheel Workouts: 50 Exercises to Stretch and Strength Your Abs, Core, Arms, Back, and Legs
