Get Six Pack Abs Sooner With Ab Ball Curl Ups

Get started sculpting your six pack abs using the ab ball curl up. You can do the ab ball curl up at home or at the park. To add resistance, place a weight on your chest.

The ab ball curl up is a good core exercise that won't injure your lower back, if done correctly. Your rectus abdominis (6-pack part of your abs) and obliques should do most of the work.





Lie on your back on the ball, knees bent about 90 degrees, hands behind head and feet flat on the floor.

Lie on the ball so that your back hugs the ball. Your shoulders and neck shouldn't assist your abdominals during the movement.

The movement should be slow. Curl up and bring your chin towards your chest (to about 45 degrees). Curl up through the upper back and not the neck. Brace your abs during the movement (as if someone is going to punch you in the gut). Keep your ears and shoulders in alignment. DON'T ROUND YOUR LOWER BACK WHEN LIFTING YOUR TORSO!

Use your abdominals to curl your upper back up. Don't move any other body part and keep your arms, shoulders, neck and legs relaxed as the abs pull you up. Your head and arms should curl up with your shoulders.

Don't tilt your pelvis or pull with your thighs to lift your upper body. Hold for 2-3 seconds and return slowly to the starting position.

Use your abdominals to lower your upper back. Don't move your head or arms as you return to the start position.
