Ball Leg Curl
How to: Ball Leg Curl
Primary Muscles Used:Hamstrings
- Start by lying flat on your back on a yoga mat with your feet elevated on a fitball. Allow your arms to rest by your sides on the mat. Engage your abdominal muscles by drawing your belly button in towards your spine. Using your glutes and hamstrings, gently raise your hips off the floor so that you are resting on your upper back and your body forms one straight line from head to toe. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Exhale. While keeping your feet together and hips elevated, bend your knees to bring your feet in towards your glutes. This movement will cause the fitball to roll in towards you.
- Inhale. Extend your knees to return to the starting position, ensuring that your hips remain elevated. This movement will cause the fitball to roll away from you. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
