Instructions: How To

Balance Trainer Braced Frog Kicks is a bodyweight core exercise that involves sitting on a Balance Trainer and extending your legs out away from yourself. By raising, and extending your legs, you’re already engaging your core, but by sitting on a balance training, you add more instability to the movement.

  1. Sit on the Balance Trainer with hands on the sides of the dome.
 Pull both knees toward the chest in a v-sit position.
 Slowly extend both legs while simultaneously lowering the torso into a supine position.
 Pull the knees back in and tuck back up to the starting position.
 Maintain a braced core throughout the exercise and avoid arching the lower back in the extended position.

Common Mistakes

  • Dropping Your Heels

    Don’t allow your heels to drop between reps. Keep them elevated throughout the entire exercise. You would be able to perform more reps by giving yourself some time to rest between reps, however it will make this exercise less effective. Focus on keeping your core engaged, and your legs elevated.
