There are several workout machines that deliver the same movement as the Stability Ball Roll exercise, but many people don’t like to spend more money on exercising equipment since they seem to have enough in the home. The Stability ball Roll is an effective abs workout that delivers great results for your abs and paves the way to six-packs very effective. Here is how to do it.
First, kneel on the floor and straighten your body up. Place your hands on the Stability ball and roll forward. Once you reach a straight body position from the knees to the elbows (which are on the ball) roll back to initial position. This movement tends to be quite tricky so it is recommendable that you have previous ab workout experience before you take on this exercise.
Remember that the key for this exercise is a straight back at all times. Since you are doing this exercise with a stability ball, balancing the body in the right position is very important. Know that to maintain the balance of the body with the stability ball, the abs are those that do the work. So in a way, you get two abs workout in one – the balance maintenance and the workout itself.
After many times of performing this exercise, the core muscles will strengthen and ‘require’ from you more challenges. So, to make this exercise a more challenging than before, try doing the stability ball roll with your feet on the ground instead of the knees. The Roll movement will put more pressure on the abs as they try to maintain balance, stretch forward and contract back.
