Killer Core Workout!

This is a Body Sculpting pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 7621)

This workout uses stability balls (55-65 cm) to strengthen abs, back, and upper body. My class is ALWAYS moaning by the time we are done-It's tough!

A few notes:

Push ups- As with any push up, keep the back straight, abs tight, no sagging or butt in the air!

Ball Walk outs- Go belly down on the ball, walk your hands out as far as you can. The ball will roll down your body until it reaches your feet. Your torso should form a "bridge" between your arms and the ball.

Back extensions- Belly down on ball, hands behind head. Use your hips against the ball to anchor you, feet are wide. Raise and lower upper body from ball.

Ball roll-ins (legs straight)- Belly down on ball, hands on floor. Your feet should be off the ground. Position the ball so that it is at the level of your hips. Use your abs to push the ball toward your arms. Stick your butt up in the air so that you make an upside down "V". Bent leg roll ins are the same, except legs bend and ball tucks under you.
