A Fun 10 minute Ab Workout with a stability ball!

Excercise 1:The plunk

  • Start by clasping your hands together and placing your elbows on top of the Stability Ball.
  • Extend your body in a straight line from shoulders to toes. Keep your abs contracted.
  • Hold this position for 10 seconds at first, then try to work yourself up to 30 seconds.
  • Repeat 2 times.

Exercise #2: Crunches

Start in a sitting position on the ball, then walk your body forward until your hips are just off the ball and your back is over the ball. Keep your feet about a shoulder width apart to help you maintain your balance, and place your hands behind your head.

  • While keeping your hips and lower body still, crunch forward and lift shoulder blades off the ball.
  • Hold at the top for 1 second and slowly lower back down to the starting position.
  • Repeat 2 sets of 15.

Exercise #3: Side Crunches

  • Start by lying face up with your back on the top of the stability ball, and your feet against a wall or some other object.
  • Spread your feet apart and put your hands clasped lightly behind your head.
  • Turn your body right or left to a 45 degree angle (no more) in relation to the ball.
  • Raise your top elbow straight up towards the ceiling. Keep your elbows away from your body and maintain the 45 degree angle for the duration of the movement.
  • Lower slowly and repeat.
  • Repeat 2 sets of 15.
