Hi, I'm Amy Newman, fitness expert and creator of the Perfect 10 workout. I'm going to show you how you can do some Pilates simple exercises on the stability ball. Let's lay back slowly, put our legs over the ball, arms by your side. Flatten out your back and your neck. Slowly lift your pelvis. And then roll back down. Inhale. Exhale as you exert. Inhale as you come back down. Exhale as you exert. Inhale as you come back down. You can make it a little bit harder, stretching one leg up and bending the other. Exhaling as you lift, inhaling as you lower. Exhale as you lift, inhale as you lower. And then of course switch legs. Then you can do crunches on the ball in this pose as well. So you lift up, exhaling. Inhale down. Exhale, lift. Inhale down. Isolating your legs, keeping them nice and still. No energy in your legs. Try to place all the energy in your abdominal area. Inhale down. Exhale up. Inhale down. You can exhale and twist. Inhale down. Exhale twist to the other side. Inhale down. Twist to the side. Inhale. Exhale. Inhale. Back to the center. And those are some simple exercises that you can do with Pilates on the stability ball.
