Place the ball on the floor in close proximity to a wall. Kneel on the floor between the wall and the ball placing your hand
on top of the stability ball for balance. Extend one leg forward and one leg backward bracing them where the wall meets the floor.
It is very important that the bottom leg of the side you are exercising is the one extended forward. Otherwise the movement is
subjected to unwanted rolling and instability.
Once you've secured your foot position, your hip placement becomes equally important. The hip of the side you are laying on
should reside high up on the ball. If your body is not high enough on the ball it could kick the stability ball out to the side and
cause you to begin all over again. Relax and stretch yourself sideways over the stability ball with your arms bent and hands clasped behind
your head. Push your hips downward into the stability ball and crunch your body lifting off the ball in the direction of the wall.
until maximal range of motion is reached. Hold and slowly lower yourself back to your original position.
