Ball Pull-In

This month we have put together an exercise to target the rectus abdominis and transverse abdominis muscles (your core). Ideal to try at home with a fitball or at the gym, this is a great exercise for your abs and will help tone your tummy.

Starting Position:

Get into a press up position, placing the exercise ball on the lower part of your shins.
Your body should be in a straight line.

Movement:

Slowly pull your knees in towards your chest, allowing the ball to roll forwards under your ankles. Hold for a moment with your abs contracted. Return to the start position by straightening your legs and rolling the ball away from your body.

Tips:

  • Try tucking your chin into your chest during the movement.
  • Keep your back as straight as possible.

Have a go and let us know your feedback!
