Here are two ways of working your back: opposite limb extension with resistance band and opposite limb extension on the exercise ball. To do this with a resistance band, follow the directions below:
- Lay your belly on a ball. Stabilize yourself by placing your hands underneath your shoulders, and your feet hip distance apart.
- Simultaneously lift your right arm and your left leg straight out. Hold for two seconds and then release back to the ground. Now lift your left arm and your right leg. Hold for two seconds and slowly release. Try to move slowly and with control. Try to keep the ball as steady as possible. Use your deep abs to help stabilize.
- Repeat this move for a total of 15 to 20 reps on each side.
