Chest and Ab Stretch on the Ball
Stretching and Flexibility Exercises
Paige Waehner
This exercise is perfect for stretching the chest and abs. By relaxing on the ball and letting your arms fall out to the side, you can stretch the entire front body while getting full support from the ball.
  1. Lie face up on the ball and roll down until your back, head and neck are fully supported.
  2. Relax your hips and let your arms fall out to the sides for a relaxing chest stretch.
  3. Hold for 3-5 breaths and repeat as many times as you like.
