Get Stronger

In month 6 of our 12 Healthy Habits challenge, the focus turns to building muscle.

5 Core Moves

All you need is a stability ball and a mat. Tone your abs and strengthen your back to improve your posture and balance.

Holding Wall Squat with Ball Press

Target: Side and front abs

Start: Hold a nonweighted ball (such as an inflatable stability ball) in both hands, at chest level, and stand with back flat against a wall.

Move: Slowly squat until thighs are parallel to the floor. Touch ball against wall over right shoulder, bring it back to center, then touch it to the wall over left shoulder for one rep. Keep back flat against the wall throughout the move, abs pulled toward spine, and knees in line with ankles; do not allow knees to push beyond toes.

Repeat: Perform two sets of 10 to 12 reps with one minute of rest between sets.
