if it aggravates you don't do them, there are enough other exercises you can do, planks for instance.
Doing rollouts with only half ROM is still a very effective exercise if you maintain the hollow.
Seems like i have to work on it again. My abdominals seem to be weak as fuck.
Is there a good routine/progression for them? I've seen the stuff Ross Enemait does with a ramp, but that's impossible in my gym.
DW, what I started off doing is going from the knees. If that's too hard, you can widen your knee stance. When you want to progress to standing, just using a split-stance and narrow your feet each session until you're doing full standing rollouts.
I think the key is to squeeze the abs as hard as possible and as soon as you feel that you're losing the tight back you need to stop and reset form. I'm hoping to get back to them soon.
