How To Perform Exercise

The exercise ball pull-in uses a stability or exercise ball to isolate and work the lower ab muscles.

Steps :

1.) Start off lying down as if you were performing a pushup and place your feet and shins over either an exercise or stability ball.

2.) Make sure that you keep your back straight and supporting your weight with your hands, then slowly pull your knees towards your chest in a controlled manner so that the ball rolls forward under your ankles.

3.) Crunch and squeeze your abdominal muscles, hold for a count, then roll the ball back into the starting position.

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