2. Ball Crunch

Targets abs, hips, thighs

Sit on the ball and walk your feet out and forward of your knees, sliding your butt down so your body is at a slight incline. Press palms together in front of your chest, keeping a tennis-ball-size space under chin. Pressing lower back into ball, lift upper body and crunch up. Hold one breath and return to starting position. Work up to 3 sets of 10 to 12 reps.

Challenge yourself: Walk feet closer to ball and lift butt; raise arms straight overhead.

Next:  3. Ball Bridge

@ tweetylc13 - i think you are meant to rest your non moving legs ankle on top of your moving legs knee(lower thigh), that way you are balancing with one leg and it makes you have to engage your core more. Hope that made sense.

How can you do it with just one leg for the challenge? Where do you place non-moving leg?
