Exercise Ball Crunch

Step 1

Start seated on a fitball with both feet firmly planted on the floor. Carefully walk your feet forwards and lay back onto the fitball until it is following the natural curvature of your mid-back. Place your hands behind your head and interlace your fingers, ensuring that you relax your head into your hands. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Set your T-zone. Exhale. Tuck your chin into your chest and draw your ribs to your hips to elevate your head and shoulder blades off the fitball, stopping when your upper body forms one straight line from your chin to your hips. You do not need to sit all the way up.

Step 3

Inhale. Slowly lower your torso to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
