Exercise of the Week: Hip Raise w/exercise ball

pelvicThis month I would like to focus on exercise that use a stability ball. I bought mine for $5 at a store called 5 below and it really is great. If you haven’t purchased one yet I recommend you do because they really do help you get a great workout. This week we are going to go with the Hip Raise exercise…so how do you do it?

Start by laying on the floor (if you have an exercise mat make sure to use that) and place your legs on the stability ball. Place your arms out to the sides with your palms facing upward. You should now look like A.  Now starts the fun part…raise your hips. Make sure that you are keeping your body straight from your shoulders to your knees. You should look like B. Hold for 5 seconds and go back to starting position. That is one rep. That is all there is to it. Add 1 to 2 sets of 10 reps to your daily routine.

That’s it, pretty easy but you will feel it tomorrow 🙂
