Twisty Abs On the Ball

I'm a big fan of the fitness ball--those large rubber balls that can be used for stretches, situps, and various strengthening exercises.

If you want to mix up your ab exercises with a fitness ball, try this move, especially if you don't like doing traditional crunches. You'll feel it!

-Start by lying on the floor with your legs in a V-shape and hold a large fitness ball between your feet. Your feet should be at approximately 9:00 and 3:00 positions.

-Concentrate on using your abs to turn the ball so your feet are at the 12:00 and 6:00 position. Count to 2 as you twist and return to the starting position. Repeat on the other side.

-Alternate for a total of 10 times to start, and then work your way up to more sets as desired.
