Ankle Tubing is a great accessory to use to strengthen around the hip joint and comes in three different tensions. This accessory is used in our CORE™ Athletic Conditioning & Performance Training™ Program Interval Workout. The Halo® Trainer is a great tool to help keep the Stability Ball™ still. The unstable surface of the ball provides an extra challenge. The focus of this exercise is on the glute connection, as well as on the core to keep the spine neutral and stabilized, and also the shoulders and upper back to support the body.
Starting Position: prone over the Stability Ball, with the abdomen on the apex, legs long and apart to have some tension on the Ankle Tubing, toes tucked under, hands on Halo Trainer or on the Mat.
Exercise: inhale to prepare; exhale to lift one leg off the Mat, increasing the tension on the tubing; inhale to return.
Watch out: keep shoulders stabilized and abdominals engaged, make sure hips are staying square and work is happening at the hip joint and not the lower back.
Up the challenge: perform the exercise on the Stability Ball without the Halo Trainer.
"Easy to carry around for work when I travel."
