Exercise of the Day!

Stability Ball Knee Tucks
Targets: obliques, rectus abdominis.
This exercise can be performed using just a stability ball and placing the hands on the ground with the arms fully extended. Personally I like to, and feel it is best, to perform this exercise with the forearms resting across a bench or chair, similar to the position you would assume if performing a forearm plank or elbow stand exercise.

1. With your forearms supported on a bench or chair, extend your legs back and onto the top of a stability ball.

2. Your entire body should be pretty much parallel with the floor at this point.
3. Brace your abdominals and slowly pull your knees forward towards your chest.

4. Hold this position for a split second before extending the legs back to the start position and repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
* Go to: for more great exercises!
