We recently wrote about how the stability ball was a great piece of kit to work on the deep stabilising muscles of the trunk and core. Here we demonstrate how to incorporate this into your next workout at home or at the gym.
This exercise targets the abdominals and glutes or the abs and buttocks as a normal person would say.
Start by sitting on a stability ball, roll out until your head and shoulder blades are resting on the ball and your knees are directly above your feet.
Elevate your hips so that your shoulders, hips and knees form a straight line. Lift one foot off the ground, making sure your hips stay up.
Return to your laying starting position and repeat with the other leg.
To increase the level of difficulty of this exercise:
- Extend your leg parallel to the floor and hold
- Add a dumbbell chest press into the exercise.
Looking forwards to sharing another exercise with you next week. If you need any advice in the mean time then please contact me on my email here.
