Melissa has good posture control during her ab wheel reps.  She could maybe be a little more "hollow" in the core but what I like is that she can hold this position pretty well through the entire range.  Many of you break in the lumbar spine as you progress through the movement, which shouldn't happen.  If you feel that happening next time you do this, stop just short of that point.  Hollow positioning is key here.
