Benefits: This exercise aids in crunching the abs and strengthening the hip flexors.
Next, she practises a hamstring curl, in which she lies on the floor and stretches her glutes. Holding the ball stable all the while makes the exertion more challenging.
Benefits: Works on the hamstrings and glutes while also strengthening the core.
Stability Ball V-Pass
Lying flat on her back, she attempts a V-pass, in which she bends her abs to assume a V-position with her arms and legs.
Benefits: This works the core and engages the inner thighs and arms as well.
These basic moves can be undertaken to work on that strong core.
