Supine Leg Pendulum
Lay on your back with the ball between your ankles. Place your arms straight out from your shoulders, palms down.
Grab the ball with your ankles and engage your abdominals as you lift your feet over your hips. Lower the ball to the side until your outer thigh touches the floor. Pause, then exhale and pull your abs towards your lower back as you press your back to the floor and return your legs to vertical.
External and internal abdominal obliques
TIP: Use your arms as an anchor, trying to keep the backs of your arms and shoulders on the floor at all times.
