Very helpful tutorials! For some reason, teaser is so much easier for my body then the roll-up. This tutorial was very helpful. I have the issue of my legs wanting to lift up like in the 3rd example. I can't wait to try it with the ankle weights. I was told it was my tight hip flexors that caused my legs to want to lift. Could it be anything else?!? Would love more feedback on this issue.

Hi Chris, glad you're finding the tutorials helpful! The 3rd example is very common. It may be a tight lumbar spine. Try imprinting your low back into mat by drawing in abs & curling pubic bone & head towards another.

Wendy glad it was helpful! I know many whom struggle with this exercise & it has more to do with tightness rather than weakness 🙏🏻

Thank you this was great:). Would be helpful to know of the different reasons why people can't complete the roll up in the tutorial. Whether it is weak abs or tight hip flexors or could there be any other reasons? I remember hearing weak hamstrings can be a problem?
