Strengthen the core muscles that support the back.
This is a variation of the standard plank core-strengthening exercise that incorporates a stability ball to increase the exercise challenge.
Back pain is a common complaint with many origins. The LumboTrain Back Brace and LumboTrain Lady Back Brace from Bauerfeind helps to support the low back and control the stresses that may produce pain.
- Begin this exercise kneeling in front of a stability ball.
- Place both forearms on the ball then extend the hips and knees.
- If properly positioned, a straight line can be drawn through the ankles, knees, hips and shoulders.
- Hold the position for 10-15 seconds, or as your ability allows.
- Relax and repeat as instructed.
