I hardly do crunches on the floor anymore, because I love how effectively I can target my core using an exercise ball. It takes less reps, and I see faster results. If you love using a ball to strengthen your abs, give this move a try. It may look easy, but looks can be deceiving.
- Place your palms on the ball, and stand with your legs wide, about three or so feet apart. Walk the ball out so your back is straight and your hips are in the same line as your ankles.
- From here, lean your body forward, allowing the ball to roll down your forearms. Stop once your elbows reach the ball and you're balancing on your tiptoes.
- Then use your core and legs to get your body back to the starting position. Keep your abs engaged throughout this move.
- Complete three sets of 12 to 15 reps.
