Stability Ball Plank to Pike

Target area(s): abs, back and shoulders

How to perform a stability ball plank to pike:

Start with your hands under your shoulders, and shins resting on the stability ball.  Keep your body in a straight line from head to toe.

Begin to roll the ball to your middle, using your abs and legs, while lifting your hips.  Keep your head between your arms.  Your body should be in an upside down V, the pike position.

Hold for 1 count and slowly roll back down to the starting plank position.

Complete 3 sets of 10 – 15 reps, resting for 45 seconds in between each set.
