Day 230: Stability Ball Pike

Leave a comment

This exercise tones your shoulders, lower back, and abs.

Required: A well-inflated stability ball.

How To Do It:

  1. Lie facedown on the ball with your thighs atop its centre. Put your palms on the floor so that they are aligned under your shoulders. Extend your arms fully.
  2. Slowly roll the ball forward so it moves under your feet as you lift your hips. Keep your legs straight as you form an inverted V with your body. If this is too difficult then bend your knees in towards your chest and roll the ball towards you.
  3. Hold for 1 count and then slowly roll back to the starting position.
  4. Do 15 reps.
