Day 118- Toe Taps from Table Top Double Leg on Slomo Ball

This exercise adds proprioceptive challenges to the double leg toe taps by placing the pelvis on an unstable base

To do this exercise you will need a mat and a soft ball.  Start by lying on your back with the soft ball underneath your pelvis.  Your legs should be in a tabletop position.  Inhale into the back of the ribs to prepare and then exhale as you squeeze your inner thighs together and tap both toes on the ground and then bring them back up to tabletop position.  Inhale in between movement and then exhale as you repeat.  Continue for 6-8 repetitions

Things to think about
The wobbly ball will make this exercise quite challenging for the lower abdominals.  Be sure that you are exhaling completely and maintaining awareness of your pelvic floor and lower abdominals
