Beginning

Beginning Pike Plank with Swiss Balls

1. Put your hands under your shoulders and your back flat in a push-up plank position, but with a ball under your legs.

2. With your toes pointing, place the ball between your shins and the tops of your feet.

3. Make sure your abs are engaged so your hips don't fall to the floor.

Movement

Pike Plank with Swiss Balls Movement

1. Using a stability ball, you are going to be in a push-up position, with a slight difference.

2. One foot is going to be rested on the stability ball while the other foot remains in the air.

3. Instead of the body being straight like you are doing a pushup, you are going to be in a pike position.

4. To accomplish this, use your toe on the stability ball to push off and curve your body.

5. You will be pushing more with your shoulders instead of your chest.

6. Bend slowly at the elbows to bring your body and head towards the ground.

7. Stop right before your head touches the ground and push yourself back up to the original push-up position. That completes one repetition.

8. Don't forget to switch the leg that is on the stability ball.

Benefits
