This Pilates exercise is great for targeting the core musculature.
- Lie on your back with your knees bent and the Pilates ball between your knees. Lift your arms up overhead.
- Inhale and stretch your arms up toward the ceiling. Exhale and slowly begin to roll up to a seated position. You should maintain a hollowed abdomen and imagine that you are lifting one vertebrae at a time off of the floor.
- Once you are seated upright, inhale. Then exhale and slowly roll back down, vertebra by vertebra.
Repeat 8-10 times.
