What's The Best Flooring For An Ab Wheel Workout?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: September, 2021 - Modified: September, 2023

An ab wheel workout effectively strengthens muscles in the entire body. The best flooring will protect the user from injury and the subfloor from damage.

The ab wheel workout is one of the very best core abdominal routines available, as it also works to strengthen the arms, back, and legs. It’s a great workout for beginners or advanced gym experts, as it offers so many total body benefits. With video programs and YouTube routines to follow, this is a good program to do at home.

Because the ab wheel device needs to easily roll to complete the workout, the flooring solution should not have too much traction or grip. Some users will do the workout on the knees, so cushioned support should be offered by the floor. The surface should be scratch and scuff-resistant, too.

Greatmats offers many different flooring solutions that would perfectly accommodate an ab wheel workout, with the following 5 being among the best:
