Swiss Ball Exercise 6: Swiss Ball Hip Raise

Swiss Ball Hip Raise

How To:

Protocol: 2 sets — 20 reps

Primary Muscle(s): Lower Back, Transverse Abdominis (inner abs), Hamstrings

Start with your back flat against the ground and the back of your heels firmly on top of a Swiss ball (A). Dig your heels into the ball and raise your pelvis upward until your body forms a bridge at about a 30 degree angle (B). This is starting position.

With your core tight and lower back straight, roll the ball inward, raise your torso to 75º, and push your knees upwards into the air (C). Hold for 1 second at the top, slowly return down to a flat bridge, and repeat.
