Hey, Kris Simpson here. We’re going to go balls deep today. We’re going to kill the core with my favorite stability ball exercises and show you the best core workout for abs! Let’s get started. We’re going to do the knee tuck. What I need you to do is set yourself up in a bridge with the top of your feet on the ball, then tuck your knees in, creating a ball. Tuck in as hard as you can, contracting your core.
You can do something else with this too. It’s called the pike. With the pike, what I want you to do is put your toes on the ball, pike up, almost like a downward dog position that you would do in yoga. This is also a great core exercise.
Let’s get on the floor here, work some lower abs. I need you to bring the ball up to about a 45 degree angle. Start twisting the ball. This is called the scissor hold, great for the lower ab. We can turn this into the drawbridge now, kind of a cool exercise, again, for the lower abs, and then into the grab and hold. Come up, grab the ball and hold, and grab and hold.
It’s all about the core, but we’re also going to initiate the glutes and the hamstrings with this one. What I want you to do is bring the ball nice and close, get a 90 degree angle from you knees to your hips. Come up into a bridge, squeezing tight, and repeat. Now, what I want you to do is convert this into a leg curl, kicking out, kicking back into that bridge. You’re really going feel this in your hams and your glutes.
Ahhh, thank god I’m finished, can’t wait to get home because when your day is done, there’s still time to let your balls out and have some fun.
