This is a good exercise for the abdominal muscles.
- Start by laying on your back on the floor or mat. Roll a stability ball under your lower legs (table top). Press the heels and lower legs firmly into the ball. Have one arm reaching up toward the ceiling, then bend the elbow slightly. The band should be anchored by the other arm, which is out to your side on the floor, with your hand slightly above your head.
- Lift your head and shoulders off the mat slightly, and reach the raised hand toward your opposite knee.
- Repeat the exercise on each side about 10 - 12 times. Go back to the starting position, relax your arms and repeat on the other side.
