I also recommend a muscle building program after this.  I always laugh when you give people this advice and they're scared they'll become too big, as if they can develop into Arnold Schwarzenegger overnight.   

That is a great tool, however, without the necessary strength it can do more harm than good, so always take it slowly and within one's abilities.

To properly use it, one must keep their abs flat. To get this feel, lie on a flat hard surface and press your lowerback into the ground (this is a good exercise in its own right). This is the way the abs should be when using the wheel. Hunched forward. If one's back caves in during use, then stop. To graduate its difficult, you can face a wall so you can't go down all the way. The strong you get, move further from the wall until you have the strength and coordination to go nose to ground and back.

After that, on your knees, work on doing a standing wheel.
