Default My New Favorite Ab Exercise

Stability Ball Pike

Begin by kneeling behind a stability ball. Drape your body over the ball and walk your hands forward into a plank position. Your arms should be straight and in line with your shoulders, as in the start position of a push-up, and your knees or shins should be on top of the ball with your legs straight and your feet together.

Tightening your core musculature to maintain position and keeping your head and neck neutral, begin the movement by contracting your abs and flexing at the hips to bring the ball under your torso, pulling with your legs and feet (your feet will be on top of the ball once you reach the point of peak contraction of the exercise). Your legs should remain straight throughout the movement.

Return to the start position and repeat.

By the way, one thing that helps to avoid transferring the weight to your shoulders as you roll the ball beneath you is to concentrate on bringing your hips toward your ribs.

I have been doing it for a few weeks now and I think it's great! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] It makes me feel pretty tuf. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] lol

Actually it doesn't require an extreme amount of flexibility. Here, I'll even show you some pictures of MEN doing it! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]



YouFiz, let me know how it goes! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
