back extension

Move Targets: Back and core


Step 1: Lie face down on top of a stability ball with your arms behind your head and your feet in a wide stance. Lean forward and lengthen your body so your torso is resting against the ball and you’re firmly balanced on your toes.

Step 2: Lift your chest upward as much as you can, hold a moment, and then slowly lower back down allowing yourself to curl around the ball. Do this as many times as possible for 60 seconds.

Modification (Beginner): Decrease your range of motion

Disclaimer: Remember to check with your doctor first to confirm that you and your baby are both healthy enough for this workout. Also, ensure that your baby is strapped in and positioned safely without discomfort.
