Audio for Stability Ball Bridge with Foot Raise Video
My first exercise, we’re going to do on the stability ball is a bridge with a foot raise. Now this is a good exercise just to warm up the core area, just to get things firing and get yourself ready for the challenge that’s going to follow. This is how we do it.
So you start by just sitting on the ball, and then from here you roll yourself forward until the ball is on the shoulder blades. The legs should be bent 90 degrees. Next, we’re going to lift the hips up into the air, and contract the glutes, the buttocks, nice and tight. Lean back and look straight up, and then from here you have to lift one leg and extend it out in front of you. So lift one, extend it out, and change. You’re just going to alternate sides, and you’re just going to feel for the stability ball. Keep those hips up nice and high. There we go.
That is the stability ball bridge with the leg raise. It’s a good exercise just to warm up and a great one to start with, 20 in total, alternating legs on each side.
