Now I’m going to demonstrate how to do a front
plank on an exercise ball. Okay, it’s going to take a little bit more
core strength. You’re going to start on your knees. Okay, place your elbows down on top of the
ball, like so. Okay, a lot of people you’ll see crossing
their hands, but I want you to concentrate on keeping the hands separate. Okay, that’s gonna develop more core strength
over time. And you’re gonna lift up, squeeze the glutes,
push in the bellybutton into the back or your navel into the back, really engaging the core
here. Okay, it’s very natural to feel like you’re
shaking a little bit, but as long as you’re balanced and feel comfortable on top of the
ball, that’s whats most important. So you are gonna flex your upper body, tighten
your midsection, so you feel that stretch in the lower abdominals. You’re going to hold this position, okay,
for about 30 seconds to a minute. Really engaging the core underneath, so you
feel you’re nice and balanced on top of the ball. Okay, keep your legs fully extended, breath
naturally, so you don’t hold the breathe, tighten the midsection. Okay, when you’re finished that 30 seconds
to a minute of doing the front plank on the exercise ball, drop to your knees. Okay, take a rest. And that’s how you properly do a front plank
on an exercise ball.
