Prone hip extension on ball

STRENGTH

Preparation:

  1. Push up position with arms slightly bent and ball under hips.
  2. Tighten the belly by pulling the belly button towards spine and maintain there for entire exercise breathing shallowly.
  3. Keep the legs straight and together. 

How to Do:

  1. Lift both legs toward the ceiling as far as active range of motion allows (you should not hyper-extend your lower back), lower both legs to starting position and then repeat.
  2. Control is essential; don’t rush through any part of the movement.
  3. If you feel any discomfort in back discontinue the exercise.
