Exercises of the Week #30 - Yoga Ball and Abs Exercise #4

Opposite Arm Leg Extensions on Ball from Live Functional on Vimeo.

Back Stabilization

+ Center the ball on your center around the belly button, as you lift the arm/leg you will feel the pressure increase in the abdomen area, this will increase likelihood of a gaseous procurement, just a friendly warning.

+ Keep head still, looking at the ground, not in front of you.

+ Try as hard as you can to stay still on the ball, this is hard, you will have to hold your body against the ball rolling you around. For a simpler start, begin with the legs first, then add the arm to the appropriate leg.

+Pace is slow and deliberate.
2-3 sets of 12-20 reps should take about 3-5 min
