Category : Fitness, Training Session
Workout routines get boring very fast if you don’t spice them up somehow. If you are working hard to achieve perfect abs, you’re probably already tired of the classic workout routine that you go through every day. To make your workout more interesting, read the following lines to learn about some creative stability ball exercises for perfect abs.
For the rollout exercise, you need to rest your arms on the stability ball and extend your legs behind you. Afterward, brace your abs and roll the ball forward as you extend your arms and hips. When you start feeling like you’re about to lose tension in your abs, roll yourself back. Do 3 sets of 10 reps with 90-second breaks between the sets every day.
Legs on ball crunch
For the legs on ball crunch exercise, you have to lie on the floor with your back and drape your legs over the ball with your hips and knees bent. Crunch your torso up to meet with your legs. Do 3 sets of as many reps as you can with a 90-second break between the sets.
V-up and pass
For this exercise, you must lie on your back on the floor and hold the ball tight between your ankles. Next, extend your arms behind your head. Sit up while raising your legs simultaneously and pass the ball to your hands. Afterward, go back down to the floor and repeat the movement, passing the ball from your hands to your legs. Do 3 sets of 10 reps without taking any breaks.
To do the crunch exercise, you have to lie on the stability ball while keeping the feet-shoulder width apart on the floor. The lower part of your back should be supported by the ball. Next, place your hands behind your ears and tuck your chin. Curl your body off the ball until you’re sitting up. Do 3 sets of as many crunches as you can with a 90-second break between them.
For this exercise, you have to get into pushup position while resting your forearms on the stability ball. Brace your abs and move your elbows in a circular pattern. Roll the ball beneath your elbows. Complete 5 circles in a clockwise motion and then repeat counterclockwise. Do 3 sets of 5 reps in any direction that you want without taking a break.
