Instructions: How To

This exercise is very similar to a Stability Ball Back Extension. Like the back extension, this exercise primarily targets the muscles in your lower back. The use of a stability ball helps to add instability to the movement. This is a great exercise for improving lower back strength and core stability.

  1. Place your hips on top of a stability ball your legs extended and feet pressed against a wall.
  2. Fold your hands across your chest and relax your torso over the stability ball.
  3. Press your hips into the stability ball and raise your shoulders as high as you can.
  4. Control the motion back to the starting position.
