|Once you get into the straight leg raise position, start by making
small movements to the side with the raised leg - just 4 inches one side
then 4 inches to the other side. Over time increase these movements
gradually. You may not feel comfortable rotating your trunk while in
this position, so don't. This exercise requires strength in your
abdominals as well as control.
This is a very advanced ball exercise as it forces you to maintain spinal stability as you move limbs and rotate your trunk. I recommend you master the exercises listed above prior to attempting this ball exercise.
If you've come this far and have already mastered the bridging, leg raise, and hip roll and still find this difficult, try letting some air out of your ball or propping it up against the wall to start until you get the hang of it.
Repeat this ball exercise 5 times.
Repeat this ball exercise 10 times.
Repeat this ball exercise 15 times.
