Three Abs Exercises on a Gym Ball (swiss or fit ball) to Try Out:

 

Exercise #1: Roll down

3 Abs Exercises on a Gym Ball (swiss or fit ball) to Try Out/ Exercise #1: Roll down

Sit on the gym ball with space in front of you. Walk your feet forwards and lean the body back, before returning to the upright position. Start with a small range of movement if you’re new to this. If you’re more familiar with it, to increase the challenge, you’ll increase the range of movement – so the further back you lean the body, the hard it’ll be.

Repeat: 3 x 8 – 10 times

Remember: The further back you go, the more work your abs will do.

 

Exercise #2: Roll down with Rotations

As above, sit on the gym and walk your feet forwards while leaning the upper body back. Cross your arms in front of you and rotate the upper body to the right and left before sitting yourself back upright.

Repeat: 3 x 8 – 10 times

 

  • Variation #1: Try all the 8-10 repetitions in one go

Increase the challenge of the abs by completing all of the 8-10 repetitions, before sitting yourself back upright. This means the muscles won’t get a rest from sitting upright and will work harder as they’re switched on for longer.

 

Exercise #3: High kneeling – Rolling the Ball Forwards

Start in the high kneeling position.

Note: If your knees are uncomfortable like this, get a rolled-up towel or a cushion under the knees.

The ball is in front of you, and place your hands on the ball. Walk or roll the ball forwards, keeping the hips straight and hinging at the knee, before returning to the upright position.

If you’re new to this exercise, start with a small range of movement. The more confident you feel, the more you can increase the range of movement and move the ball further away from you.

Repeat: 3 x 8 – 10 times
