Hi, this is Bill Victor with Here to show you today, some exercises you can do for your abdominal muscles. The first one I'd like to show you is, what's called the ball plank. This is what we refer to as a Swiss ball. Swedish ball or an exercise ball. What we do with the static plank, is we put our forearms on the ball. And without letting the forearm reach the bicep, we keep distance between the forearm and the bicep. We hold this position for as long as we can, with the feet approximately shoulder with apart. Making sure to keep the arms from touching each other. As you can see, I'm working quite hard on this movement. The other exercise I'd like to show you, that also makes great use of the abdominal muscles, are what we call a ball pike or rolling pike. In this exercise, we lay over the ball, bringing the ball to our shins. And then, proceed through just arching of the hips and bringing the hips, or the, excuse me, the feet towards the upper body. We roll and squeeze through the abdominal muscles, raising our backside in upper position. Until we feel we've had enough repetitions where we just can't do anymore. This has been Bill Victor with, wishing you a good day.
