Exercise of the Month: Swissball Jacknife

This exercise targets muscles in your lower belly, plus it works your rectus abdominus (as in, your six-pack muscles), hips, and low back.

How to Do It: Assume a pushup/plank position with your arms completely straight. Rest your shins on a Swiss ball. Your body should form a straight line from your head to your ankles (A). Without changing your lower back posture, roll the Swiss ball toward your chest by pulling it forward with your feet. Pause (B), then return the ball to the starting position by rolling it backward. That’s one rep. Pull the ball closer to your hips for a modified version of this exercise.
