The core strength stability ball roll helps to improve the function of your back and stomach muscles as a unit, otherwise known as the ‘belt’. You will really feel the benefit of a strong lower back when running, as it will help to stabilise and align the pelvis and abductors, causing you to run ‘straight’ and preventing future injury.
Kneel behind the stability ball.
Place your elbows on the ball.
Ensure that your elbows are directly under your shoulders.
Keep your head, shoulders and hips in line.
Maintain your spine position and roll the ball forward until you feel a pull on your stomach muscles.
Roll the ball back to the starting position.
A pinching sensation in your lower back
means you’re arching it, so lift your bottom slightly higher.
