Stability Ball Plank

The stability ball plank is a great core exercise to advance from the plank exercise on the floor.

1. Place your elbows on the ball and balance on your toes while keeping your body in a straight line.

2. Hold the plank position for a count of 5-10 seconds without moving. The ball will move, so it is a challenge to hold the right alignment. This will obviously improve your balance. Your abs and shoulders will also work much harder.

Keep your head in line with your torso and brace your torso (as if taking a punch to the gut).

  1. I really find it difficult to balance in an exercise ball. It's a wonder how you people get to do it. Thank you for sharing this helpful blog post, by the way.

  2. Fioricet, thanks for the comment! The ball plank is an advanced exercise so just start with doing the plank on the floor. This will strengthen your core and then you advance as your balance improves.
