Stand with feet hip a bit wider than hip distance apart. Slightly turn feet out. Hold Core ball chest level. Lower seat to as close to knee level as you can, then return to standing position.

 

CORE BALL ABDOMINAL TWIST ON BACK: (3 sets 10-15 per side)

Lie on back with ball in between ankles or right above ankles. Arms stretched out to the side. Keeping upper body in place bring legs to the right slowly, then back through center. Bring legs to the left, then return to center. Repeat.

CORE BALL PLANK (BRINGING KNEES IN AND OUT): (3 sets of 8-10 times)

Place top of feet on the Core Ball. Walk hands out so they are under shoulders and body is straight. Hands should be shoulder distance apart. Using your core strength bring knees toward chest, keeping seat down and then back to starting position. This is a challenging more, even if you can only do a few of these that’s better than zero!!
