Starting Position
  • Start this ball exercise as you did the Walk Out. Kneel on the floor in front of the ball and slide forward so that you are lying over the ball with the ball situated just under your thighs.
  • Contract your abdominals so that your back remains straight.
  • Slowly walk forward with your hands until your feet are resting on the top of the ball.
Action
  • Raise your left leg off the ball.
  • Keep the other foot in contact with the ball.
  • Slowly lower your left foot to the floor.
  • At this point you are supporting yourself on the ball with the inside of your right foot.
  • As you bring your left foot back up and over the ball, rotate your right foot on the exercise ball.
  • Try and touch your left foot to the floor on the other side of the exercise ball too.
  • Switch legs after you've done an adequate number of repetitions or you reach technical failure.
Prime Movers
  • Abdominal obliques, hips, quadriceps.
Physio Tips
