Stability Ball Exercise: Ab Workout

Ab workouts can be boring if you're just doing crunches for every workout. Try giving yourself a balance challenge by using the stability ball and doing this ab exercise. The Pike Tuck exercise in this fitness video is one that I always enjoy doing but somehow always forget, so this is my reminder to never settle into a routine – there is always a different/better/harder/more fun exercise out there!

Targets:

  • Abs
  • Butt
