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.

Lat Roll and Pull

Target: Back and lower abs

Start: (A) Kneel on the ground with a stability ball about 12 inches in front of knees, arms extended in front of body with palms flat on ball.

Move: (B) Slowly roll ball away from body so forearms are on top of the ball while simultaneously lifting knees off the ground to form a modified plank (body weight held between forearms and toes). Contract abs, and do not allow hips to drop or back to arch. Hold for two counts, slowly lower knees to floor, and roll ball back to start position.

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