Lie on your back on the floor, placing the ball between your lower legs/feet. Keeping your legs as straight as possible, raise them so that the ball is vertically above your hips, as shown.

Then engage your core, and squeezing your legs against the ball, begin twisting it by using your inner thighs to initiate the twist. Rotate the ball from side to side for the required number of reps, twisting deeper through each repetition.

Repetitions: 8-12

Sets: 2-4

This is a lovely and brilliantly effective exercise, one that you probably won’t have thought of before and can be added to any decent leg workout. The trick to this one is to keep the ball vertically above your hips with the challenge of keeping the ball held firmly between your legs.
