  • Stability Ball
  • Obliques

Setup instructions

1) Place the stability ball behind you.

3) Shift the weight to your hands and put your other leg on the ball. You should be in a decline plank position. Keep the hips up and core tight. You're aiming for a straight line between the legs, back, head and neck.

2) Pause, 'crunch' and breathe out - you'll feel this in your obliques. Now, return your leg back on the ball.

3) Repeat on the other side.
