Exercise Name: Ball Plank

Body Part(s) Worked: Abdominals / Core

Start: With your elbows on the ball and your fingers clasped, push out through your chest and squeeze your abs and glutes. Since this is an isometric abdominal exercise, I recommend holding the tight position for 20 or more seconds. Be sure to breathe, and keep squeezing all over!!! When this gets easy, you can put your feet on a step or block and eventually have some one add some weight to your back.
