Resist-a-ball Seated Twist and Bounce

This is a Ball pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 10132)

I saw this move on the Balance Ball Fitness Show broadcast by the Discovery Health Channel.

Body Position: Sit on the floor with your legs in a straddle postion (Like a wide V). Back straight, abdominals and ribcage lifted.

Ball Position: Hold the ball in your hands in front of your chest. Now lift your elbows slightly keeping your arms parallel to the floor. Your arms should form a circle while holding the ball.

Movement: While holding the ball, twist your torso to the right so that your head, chest, arms, torso, and ball move as a unit. At the end of the twist, stop, bounce the ball once on the floor. The bounce should be on the right and outside of your leg. Now twist back through center to the left. Repeat the bounce on your left. Repeat the side-to-side twisting and bouncing in a smooth, fluid motion.

This move improves flexibility and is great when used in between sets of ball pushups or back extensions.
