Week Ten – Core Exercise Using a Stability Ball
Week Eleven – Core – Stability Ball Pike
This week’s exercise was featured this past winter in Shape Magazine in an article about Kelly Osborne’s weight loss and fitness plan. I tried it for myself, liked it, and have been doing it on and off ever since. I like that it works my chest and core at the same time.
To perform this exercise you’ll need a Bosu Ball and a weighted bar. The weight of the bar doesn’t matter, choose a bar that feels comfortable for your grip.
Slowly return to the starting position.
Three sets of ten repetitions is what I do for this exercise. I love that my chest and core get a workout at the same time. More bang for the buck!
A video is always helpful!
Do you keep up your exercise routine in the summer? I tend to slack off in the gym because I’d rather spend time outside.
No summer slack off for me. I am one of those crazy morning people and am at the Y every week day morning at 5:30 am. Yeh, crazy I know!
Oh my goodness, Paula! This looks like a tough one! Yikes! I know results would come with this exercise.
I’m like Love Being a Nonny”. I’m at the gym most mornings by 5:30. Trying to get Mr. Brown Socks to take walks with me in the evening as I love being outdoors too.
I’ll have to try that one. I’m pretty sure it’s much harder than it looks. LOL
I’ve never tried this, but I can tell it would be a good one! It looks pretty challenging, which I love.
