Lie faceup on floor with knees bent, feet flat, holding a stability ball in front of chest.
Lift legs, knees bent 90 degrees, so that shins are parallel to floor, and suspend ball by pressing into it with hands (arms extended) and knees.
Simultaneously lower right arm directly behind head and extend left leg forward so that both hover a few inches off floor.
Bring right arm and left knee to touch ball again.
Do 10 reps. Switch sides; repeat.
Month 2: Lower left arm and leg simultaneously. Switch sides; repeat. Month 3: Hold a single light dumbbell in left hand as you press into ball, lowering dumbbell so that palm faces ear (to protect shoulder) as you lower left leg. Switch sides, holding dumbbell in right hand, and repeat.
Really press into the ball to make ab muscles work.
