This one is fast and dynamic, and lots of fun!

Get your stability ball. Lie with the middle of your back on the ball, with knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Place your hands behind your head like you’re doing an abdominal crunch.

Boxer Ball Crunch (1)

Squeeze your abs in tight and lift your upper back off the ball. Keeping your shoulders above the ball, trace a counterclockwise oval with your torso. (Like you’re bobbing and weaving between punches…)

Boxer Ball Crunch (2)

Keep rotating for about 10 ovals, then switch and rotate clockwise.

Boxer Ball Crunch (3)

This workout prepares your body to rock back and forth on steep hill climbs 🙂

Lie on your back with your knees bent and your heels pressed into the floor.

Extend your arms out behind your head.

Catapult (1)

Now start with your arms and “catapult” your upper body into the air so you make it up into a seated position.

Catapult (2)

Pause briefly, then lower your torso back to the floor (slowly, with control.)

This will work your entire core and get it ready for explosive motions.
