For maximum results, repeat the exercises 10-12 times, 3 reps.
1. Sit-ups on the floor
I read an article not so long ago that the regular sit-ups isn’t as far good as for instance the plank. By squeezing the ball with your legs and raise your hip just an inch above the floor the exercise will immediately get more efficient. The reason is that your stretching out your abs more, forcing them to work harder.
2. sit-ups on ball
Sit a couple of inches from the top of the ball with both of your feet on the ground as a balance support. Slowly lower your back over the ball and focus on having your knees in a straight direction. When you’re back starts to bend around the ball, stop the movement and then rise again in the same slow pace.
3. Wall squats
A. Place the ball between a wall and where your back curves.B.Bend your legs and focus on the same thing as the previous exercise, to have your knees bent straight ahead and stop when the ball is almost touching the floor.C. Extend your legs into standing position with your knees still headed straight forward.
I’m doing these everyday either before or after breakfast, depending on how much time I have after coming home from my morning walk. I always eat breakfast with my parents around 7 AM so that’s why, haha!
