How To Perform Exercise

The back extension on a stability ball exercise helps provide flexibility to strengthen the back and core muscles.

Steps :


1.) Start off lying prone on a stability ball with your toes planted firmly on the floor to help provide balance on the ball.

2.) With your hands across your chest or at your ears, raise your chest off the ball so you are hyper-extending your spine.

3.) Slowly return your chest to the ball.

4.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.
