GYM: Swiss Ball Leg Ups

Swiss Ball Leg Ups Start on your back with your arms extended above your head and a Swiss ball between your feet. Raise the Swiss ball keeping your legs as straight as possible. This will be determined by your hamstring flexibility and core stability. As you raise the Swiss ball, simultaneously bring your arms up and touch the ball with your hands. Return to the layout position and repeat for 10–15 repetitions. Maintain a neutral spine especially focusing on the lumbar (lower back) curve. The goal is to maintain the lumbar curve as you perform this exercise.
