How to do Ball Crunches



  1. Find a nice, open spot in the room and place your exercise ball on the floor.
  2. Sit on the ball and inch your feet forward. Stop only when your lower back is resting on the ball.
  3. You can either touch the tips of your ears lightly with your fingers or keep your arms crossed in front of you.


  1. Lift your upper body while keeping your core muscles taut.
  2. Stop midway when you’ve reached a challenging angle. That’s approximately 45 degrees. Hold that position for a few seconds.
  3. Engage your abdominal muscles by keeping your neck and shoulders as relaxed as you possibly can.


  1. Slowly bring yourself back down and lie on the ball.
  2. Stay in that position for about 1-2 seconds.
