How Do You Use an Ab Roller without Losing Your Grip?

Problem scenario
You have used an abdominal roller but hurt your wrist when you lost your grip. You like how it works your abs, but it feels precarious to use. What should you do?

Possible Root Cause
It could be that you were using a skinny ab roller. We find skinny ones to be more stressful and jerky to use -- but not in a way that enhances the workout. This type of ab roller may have caused the problem:

You do not want to lose your balance. You want the reps/extensions to be done with control throughout the range of the movement.

Possible Solution / Procedures
We recommend the wider Sports Research Ab Wheel Roller.

This thicker device seems to provide a more stable exercise than a thinner option.
