Move: Get on the BALL by
Rolling Like a Ball
Invigorate your spine and abdominals with this seemingly easy move. Just 8 repetitions!
Start in the shape you see to the right. Balance just behind your sitz bones by engaging your lowest abdominals. INHALE to roll just to your shoulder blades ~ EXHALE and use your upper abs to smoothly bring you upright. The low abs put on the brakes to pause you at the original tipping point. Fab massage to your spine; wake up all the layers of your abs ~ and get your circulation moving!
Any shaky/shaky business that occurs during your initial attempts reveals the imbalance of the outer abs over the inner. By your 8th rep...it will be smooth moving!
