- Begin on all fours on a yoga mat and place your forearms (wrist to elbow) firmly on a fitball, ensuring that your elbows are directly below your shoulders. Extend both legs behind you, resting on your knees. Gently draw your ribs to your hips to engage your core and ensure that your spine remains in a neutral position. This is your starting position. Keeping your core engaged, use your elbows to roll the ball in a circular motion, try to prevent your hips from dropping throughout the movement. You should feel tension in your abdominals during the movement. Ensure you continue to breathe throughout. Repeat for the specified amount of time.
