Instructions: How To

Targeting the core, particularly the lower abdominals, Exercise Ball Pull Ins involve pulling the knees towards the chest while maintaining balance on the ball. This exercise improves core strength and stability, offering a unique challenge compared to floor-based ab workouts.

  1. Position yourself in front of an exercise ball. Lie on the floor in a push-up position with your hands shoulder width apart.
  2. Push your body off the floor and place your shins on the top of the exercise ball.
  3. While keeping your back straight, pull your knees in towards your chest, such that the exercise ball rolls forward under your ankles to the tips of your feet.
  4. Hold momentarily, and then slowly straighten your legs back out to the starting position, returning the exercise ball positioned under your shin.
