Below is a video of 71 year old John Maulkin performing 15 standing rollouts with an abdominal wheel.
Standing rollouts are a challenging movement that elude many exercise enthusiasts. It is rare that one can perform multiple reps from the standing position without training specifically for the exercise. Although clearly an example of a strength based core movement, this exercise also requires strength endurance based on the time required to perform multiple repetitions. In the video above, John takes almost two minutes to perform 15 reps. Maintaining the required tension for this amount of time requires a mix of core strength and endurance.
Fifteen reps is impressive for anyone, but at age 71 it becomes even more inspiring. It isn’t every day that you find a 71 year old man capable of such a feat. Hats off to John and thanks for inspiring many who are likely half your age.
