Upperbody Rolling with RNT Supine to Prone

This is a starting point that will offer assistance in executing a supine to prone rolling pattern with the upper body that is useful when technique is compromised in a full roll.

Begin in the prone-supine by positioning yourself face up so that your back is on the floor and your hands overhead and the feet shoulder width a par.
 
Initiate the movement by lifting your head and look to the side you are rolling to, now let your arm follow you across your body and try to roll your body to the face-up position starting with your right arm only. No movement is noted in your lower body. The pad aids to assist the rolling pattern by creating the feeling of rolling downhill and assists in initiating the roll.
The option to stack several thin mats allows the removal of single mats as the movement proves successful and brings them closer to the ground and to performing the movement on their own
