Reverse Extension on Swiss Ball
Try the Reverse Extension on a Swiss Ball as a great way to strengthen and improve your stabilizing muscles. This exercise focuses on the Erector Spinal muscles of the lower back as well as the Gluteus Maximus.
Using the ball keeps your upper body stable and provides support to the lumbar region as you lower and raise your legs, placing less stress on the lower back.
It’s only necessary to come up to a straight body position at the top of the movement, and not to hyperextend the trunk.
1 – Lie face down with your chest on the ball, your hands and feet on the floor
2 – Raise your legs up behind straight, making a line from your feet to shoulders.
3 – Do not bounce up and down on the ball as you perform each rep.
4 – Have fun!
