Join me in these three exercises for your Abs on the stability ball. Another exercise you can do in fifteen minutes. Stay Strong...Stay fit.
A strong core enhances balance and stability, it can help prevent falls and injuries during sports or other activities. In fact a strong flexible core supports almost everything you do. Your back is your 'ladder' a great way to keep that support healthy and long lasting is to strengthen your core.
Start sitting on the ball - walk your feet out so your tailbone, back and shoulders are against the ball - have a 90 degree bend in the knees- hands go behind the head - release your back over the ball and squeeze as you come up - exhale as you lift - squeeze every time you come up - 10 crunches - 2 reps.
Now we are going to add a twist to our crunch, we will feel the obliques now - as you lift up and crunch you rotate- then back down- support your neck but do pull on it -
Now let's flip over so our stomach is on the ball - walk your hands out so your shins are on the ball - hands are directly under your shoulders - You will feel a nice burn in your shoulders too.
Don't forget to stretch - stretching increases your blood flow and circulation for a healthier body and sends oxygen to your brain. That's good enough for me! Plus... it feels great * I am not a trainer, I enjoy sharing with you what I do. I am constantly discovering new exercises and repeating the old. If you have any questions don't forget to ask. Stay Fit, be healthy, and happy.
