High Lunge on the Ball
Warrior on Ball
Paige Waehner
The high lunge is an excellent move for stretching the chest and hips while strengthening the legs. An exercise ball can add support, allowing you to focus on good form while deepening the stretch. It helps to have a smaller exercise ball for this exercise.
  1. Get into a lunge position on the ball, right leg forward, the left leg straight out behind you.
  2. Position yourself so that you're supported on the ball with the hips square to the front of the room.
  3. Sweep the arms up overhead as you inhale and reach back to stretch the chest and abs.
  4. Hold for 3 to 4 breaths and repeat on the other side.
