How to Do Ab Slide With Off Toes Rollout

The ab slide with an off-toe rollout exercise should begin with a good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the ab slide with an off-toe rollout.
