This is considered a more advanced exercise ball exercise because you are forced to maintain joint stability while introducing trunk rotation. You are now trying to "control your mobility" rather than "maintain your stability". Some people may be too stiff for this exercise. If you have an underlying joint dysfunction and can't take joints through this range of motion, don't attempt this. You can only move as far as your joints will allow it.
Start with very short movements and always return to 12:00 and pause to regroup and feel in control. Ensure you have control before letting your trunk rotate into the other direction. Never get to the point where you feel like you've just rescued yourself from falling over. This exercise ball exercise is all about control of movement, because if you have no control you are leaving yourself open to injury.
