Physio Tips
Progression
  • Perform multiple repetitions on one side before switching legs.
  • Try the Pike
  • Adding more air to your exercise ball will make it less stable

This is considered an advanced exercise ball exercise because you have a small base of support, and you must maintain neutral position while a loaded limb is moving. Your centre of gravity changes and your base of support changes throughout the exercise.
