  • Start on all fours with your stomach on an exercise ball and your hands and feet on the floor. Roll forward on the ball until your shins are the only part touching the ball. Keep your body in a straight line by contracting your abdominals and keeping your shoulders directly over your wrists. This is start position.
  • While exhaling, slowly roll the ball forward by bringing your knees into your chest and slightly lifting your hips. Be sure to keep your elbows straight and your abdominals tight.
  • While inhaling, straighten your legs back to start position.
  • Repeat.
