  2. Ball Pike Plank

    Place yourself in plank position with your thighs or feet on a training ball. Pull your navel towards your spine and tighten the "corset" (abdominal muscles you use when you cough for example). So, the starting position is a regular plank with feet or thighs placed on the ball. Now, make a pike with your butt and exhale forcefully while tightening the abdominal muscles even more - so that the butt moves 6-12 inches in the direction of the roof. Use the abs power as you exhale so that the butt goes up, thinking that someone lifts up the tail at the same time. Pull your belly button toward the spine even more to get the power of the abdominal muscles in sync with the powerful exhalation. Return to starting position (the plank) as breathing in, while keeping abs tight (be careful not to go too deep with the stomach, that can cause back pain).
