Audio from the Swiss Ball Twist Video
Next, we’re going to move on to some twists with the stability ball, between our feet. This is a great exercise for working again almost all the muscles in the core, from the six pack abs down to the obliques at the side, and even the muscles into the back as well. This is how we do it.
So start by putting your feet onto the ball, one foot first, hands in a push-up position underneath the shoulders. Now you want to open your feet so you can grip onto the ball. You want to grab the ball with your feet, keep your hips nice and high. From here, you rotate the ball as far to the side as you can. And then back to the center. Then work the other side. Keep the hips nice and high and the core nice and tight. It’s a really slow, controlled exercise, and it certainly takes a bit of practice to get good at. Don’t try to roll the ball too quickly and too far; otherwise, momentum will carry you over, and you’ll end up falling on the floor. I’ve learned that the hard way. Practice it. It’s a great exercise. Keep the hips up, keep the core tight, and go for it. You’re alternating sides. You’re going for 20 total.
