Targets: Abs, hips, lower back, and inner thighs.
A. Stand upright with your hands on a wall or chair for balance; place the ball between your legs.
B. Kneel forward in a squatting position so your knees hug the ball. Let go of the wall (or chair) and hold your body in a stable stance. This move challenges almost all of your muscles as they work to keep you balanced and steady. Hold the position as long as you can, with a goal of 30 seconds.
This exercise is more difficult with a big ball and easier with a smaller one. This move works your entire body, but you’ll feel it most in your inner thighs.
