How to do Exercise Ball Pikes (JackKnife)

Instructions

Preparation

  1. Put the ball on the floor.
  2. Place your ankles on top of the ball and hold the rest of your body up with your palms flat on the floor so your body is parallel to the ground.

Execution

  1. Lift your hips up until your upper body is perpendicular to the ground.
  2. Allow the ball to roll closer to your arms. Keep both legs straight at all times.

Return

Slowly lower your hips back down until you reach your initial position.

Repeat

    This exercise will help activate the rectus abdominis better than the traditional crunch ever could.
