Opposite-Limb Extensions

Work your upper back and challenge your core with this balancing move.

  • Lay your belly on a ball. Stabilize yourself by placing your hands underneath your shoulders and your feet hip-distance apart.
  • Simultaneously lift your right arm and your left leg straight out. Hold for two seconds and then release back to the ground.
  • Now lift your left arm and your right leg. Hold for two seconds and slowly release. Try to move slowly and with control. Try to keep the ball as steady as possible. Use your deep abs to help stabilize. Come back the starting position.
  • This completes one rep. Repeat this move for a total of 15 to 20 reps, alternating between lifting your left arm and right leg, and then your right arm and left leg.
