Around The World - Stability Ball

Other types of Around The World: Bodyweight


  • Sit on the ball and walk forward until your back is on the ball. Place your hands behind your head.

  • Lift your body up and twist your torso towards the right leg, continue through the center to face the left leg, and lower. Repeat then reverse your direction.

  • Abdominals 

  • Rectus abdominis, Internal and external obliques

  • TIP: Twist your entire torso from the waist upward as you move to the left or the right, keeping your neck in neutral.


Variations for Around The World

  • Side-lying Oblique Crunch

    Works the obliques without a twist. Many people do this same exercise on a back extension machine, but that can cause discomfort in the knees and hips. Try this one on the ball so that your lower body does not have so much torque on it.

  • Oblique Crunches

    These are more effective on the ball than on the floor, a common exercise, because you have to maintain your balance while you twist to the sides.
