Instructions: How To

An effective core workout, Stability Ball Bicycle Crunches target the obliques and rectus abdominis. The added instability of the ball increases the exercise's difficulty, enhancing core strength and coordination.

  1. Position your body such that your shoulder blades are supported by the stability ball. Place your feet flat on the floor.
  2. Place one hand behind your head and let the other fall to your side for stability.
  3. Engage your core to crunch forwards with a slight twist. Arc your elbow of the hand behind your head towards your knee on the opposite side.
  4. Keep your core engaged and hold this position for a moment at the end of the movement.
  5. Slowly allow the torso to return to the starting position while maintaining tension in your core.
  6. Maintain good body posture by keeping the core engaged.
  7. You should feel this exercise in your core.
