- Hips & Buttocks
- Lower back strength
- Glute strength
The reverse hip extension on the ball develops strength in the low back, glutes and hamstrings. This exercise is a challenging and fun way to develop low back strength. Focus on activating your glutes as you raise your legs. Keep your feet close together and stabilize your upper body with your hands planted firmly on the floor. Perform this exercise for a stronger core.
- Balance with your hips and stomach on top of the stability ball, with your hands on the ground.
- Keeping the legs “long,” lift them up so that they form a straight line with your trunk.
- Return slowly to the start position.
- Cocking the head back
- Bending the knees
- Feet separate too far apart
