Insider's Guide to Stability Balls
4. Elevated Leg Curl
Lie on the floor with your heels on the ball and arms a few inches away from sides, palms down. Lift hips off the floor and extend legs with knees soft. Bend knees and pull heels toward your butt, rolling the ball in. Hold for 1 breath, then extend your legs and lower your hips. Work up to 3 sets of 10 to 12 reps.
Challenge yourself: Do the move with just your right leg for 10 reps; switch sides. Do 3 sets. For an extra challenge, keep hips elevated throughout the set.
