Work your core without doing a crunch! Research shows that abdominal exercises done on the stability ball activate twice as many core muscles as classic belly busters like the crunch and the sit-up. All you need is a stability ball to work your abs, back, butt, arms and balance! Grab a balance ball and roll out onto it, making sure to keep your balance. Hold the pushup position for 30 seconds and don't forget to breathe!
Simple workout that you can do to improve balance, core strength, flexibility and stamina. Can be done anywhere but is always more fun at the beach! These workouts are available privately in person with Michael on Sullivan's Island or via e-mail.
