Swiss Ball Exercise 8: Swiss Ball Pike

Swiss Ball Pike
How To:

Protocol: 2 sets — 10 reps

Primary Muscle(s): Lower Abs, Transverse Abdominis (inner abs), Rectus Abdominis

Place your feet on top of a Swiss ball with your body fully extended out into full push up position (A). Contract your core, dig your toes into the ball, and pull it inwards while simultaneously raising your butt and torso into the air. Your legs and back should remain completely straight throughout the pike, forming a “V” at the top.

Hold the contraction for .5 seconds at the top, lower down and roll the ball back out to push up position, and repeat for 10 reps. To increase the difficulty, increase the number of reps per set.
