Abdominal Crunch with Exercise Ball

Exercise Ball Abs Core

A very simple exercise with the exercise ball to help strengthen the abdominal muscles.


  1. Start by laying on your back on a mat with the ball under your calves. Have the exercise band tied in a loop and have the loop around your wrists with your elbows bent at 90 degrees and hands above your head.

  2. Press your heels and lower legs into the ball slightly, then lift your upper body and shoulders a few inches off the ground. Exhale when you lift, inhale as your lower yourself back down. Repeat the exercise about 10 - 12 times, rest briefly with your arms in a comfortable position, then repeat the exercise for 1 or 2 more sets.
