How To Perform Exercise

The weighted ball side bend exercise uses an exercise ball instead of a bench and conforms to your body better allowing for correct anatomical range of motion.

Steps :

1.) Start off lying one side of your torso, waist and hip against an exercise ball, positioning your feet on the floor or up against a wall for support.

2.) With one hand hold a weight against the side of your head and place your free hand across your chest to steady yourself.

3.) Raise your torso up off the ball by flexing your waist and hold this position for a count.

4.) With controlled movements lower yourself back onto the ball.

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