Day 228: Core Twists

Leave a comment

This exercise targets your shoulders, back, abs, obliques, and inner thighs.

Stability Ball - no attribution required.jpg

Required: An well-inflated stability ball.

How To Do It:

  1. Lie facedown on the stability ball with your shins on top of the centre of the ball. (Hint: the easiest way to get in position is to lie down with your tummy on the ball and roll forward so that the ball is under your shins.) Place your palms on the food so that they align under your shoulders. Your arms should be extended. Your body should form a straight line from head to heels.
  2. Engage your abs and spread you feet about 1 foot apart on top of the ball.
  3. Keep engaging your abs throughout the exercise. Keep your shoulders squared and slowly roll the ball slightly to the left and to the right so that you twist your core slightly, but be careful not to twist too much. 1 twist to the left and 1 twist to the right is 1 rep.
  4. Try to do 15 reps.
