Hill Based Rollout Progression

In previous videos, I have demonstrated how a ramp can be used to increase or decrease the difficulty of a standing rollout. For example, rolling up a ramp is one of the fastest ways to progress from kneeling to standing. Conversely, rolling down a ramp is ideal to increase the difficulty for those who are already proficient with standing rollouts. Not everyone has access to a ramp however. If you find yourself in that position, try to find a moderately sloped hill and you can accomplish the same thing.

Below is a brief example.

In summary, if you can find a hill, you have an ideal place to either increase or decrease the difficulty of an excellent core exercise.

    This works nice especially if you have acces to varying degrees of incline.

    Ross-
    I read in one if your books about how you knew of immigrant businessmen who lived to America and after a few yeas if hard work were millionaires- could you post an entry sometime about businessmen like that? You had an awesome knack for motivating and encouraging- you feel like an older wiser brother to me as its hard to beat a big hearted Italian- your love for us all and life shines through. All the best my friend.
