3 Ways of Doing Gym Ball Planks

3 Ways of Doing Gym Ball Planks

Tired of holding the same, classic plank? Want to do something new with a gym ball? Try out these four gym ball planks.

1 Knee Tuck

Start in a full plank position, legs extended with shins atop stability ball. Draw knees into chest, contracting abs; straighten legs back to the initial position. Repeat for 1 minute.

2 Stir the Pot

Get into a forearm plank on top of a stability ball, elbows on ball directly under shoulders. Perform a small stirring motion with your elbows, moving in small circles clockwise for 30 seconds, then counter clockwise for 30 seconds.

3 Full Plank on Ball

Start in a full plank position, placing both hands on either side of a stability ball, forming a straight line from head to heels. Keep abs tight while squeezing through your chest and quads. Maintain the position for 1 minute.

4 Bosu and Ball Plank

Start in a full plank position, holding the edges of a bosu with ball side down and shins on top of a stability ball. Keep wrists under shoulders and abs tight. If you want to make it easier, bring stability ball closer to knees and thighs. Maintain the position for 1 minute.
