Swiss Ball Side Leg Ballet Stretches
This exercise stretches the adductor muscles (aka inner thigh) and improves balance.
- Starting position: standing leg is engaged, hips are square and open, toes slightly turned out while upper body is lifted.
- Ball leg slides out to the side creating a stretch in the inner thigh. Standing leg bends to create more stretch and a bigger range of motion.
- To return, both inner thighs are drawn together with the help of abdominals and glutes to straighten the standing leg. Weight is always centered between both legs.
Do 12 reps on each leg.
