Ball Crunches

Ball Crunches is an intermediate level core exercise. Start with your back on the physio-ball with your feet on the ground and hands cradling the back of your head, just above the neck. Leading with your chin up, contract your abs and lift your head and upper torso up. Make sure your neck is relaxed and your head is supported by your hands. Come up as high as you can without rolling forward on the ball or bringing your chin down to your chest. Once you reach the top of the range of motion slowly lower back down so that your upper body is below waist height. To keep your head and neck in the right position, pick a spot on the ceiling and keep your gaze fixed on it. This will ensure proper technique.
