1. Body Sway With Side Stretch
“This is a great exercise to help strengthen your oblique muscles. It also improves your flexibility,” says Phelan.
A. Stand with your feet parallel, shoulder width apart and knees slightly bent. Hold the ball overhead in both hands. Arms are also slightly bent.
B. (Shown) Step your right foot inward to touch your left foot, and stretch at the waist to your left, while also moving the ball left. Keep your head centered between your elbows, while drawing down your shoulder blades.
C. Return to the starting position. Then step your left foot inward, stretching toward the right and swinging the ball toward the right. Do a total of 12 repetitions.
