Ball Reverse Crunch

Technique

Lie down and press your lower back toward the exercise mat and place arms by the side. Squeeze the stability ball between your knees, tighten the abdominal muscles and lift your butt off the floor. Move your thighs in the direction of your chest, and the ball toward the chin. Use your ab muscles and reverse slowly and in control on the way back down.

Tips

Focus on the body control, do rather fewer repetitions with full control over more and sloppy ones - it will make you stronger faster.

Alternatives

Keep your arms to the floor along the body sides for more support, or place your arms at shoulder height straight out to make the exercise even more challenging.
