It’s all about the balls this week. An area never to be neglected…

The Swiss Ball Tuck
A great move to strengthen your core and test your balance!

1. Get into a pushup position, resting your shins on a Swiss ball. Hands should be slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.
2. Keeping your abs tight and spine flat, lift your hips and draw your knees toward your chest until your toes are on top of the ball and shins raised off it.
3. Slowly straighten your legs so the ball rolls back to the starting position – the slower the movement, the more you’re challenging your core muscles.
4. Repeat, performing 2 sets of 12-15 reps.
