Sculpt your abs and improve your balance with this exercise ball move.
A New Ab-Sculpting Method

This ball move sculpts your abs as it perfects your balance, says Robert Sherman, owner of F.I.T., a personal-training studio in Bethesda, Maryland. Work up to three sets.

  • Stand with feet together about a foot behind a stability ball.
  • Bend from the hips, placing hands on ball.
  • Keeping torso extended and abs and glutes tight, raise left leg behind you until it's parallel to the floor.
  • Keep your foot flexed and your inner thigh facing the floor.
  • Rotate your torso to the left and extend left arm overhead.
  • Turn head to gaze at left hand.
  • Hold for 3 counts.
  • Lower and return to starting position.
  • Repeat on opposite leg.
