Medicine ball alternating V-ups

The medicine ball alternating V-up is an advanced version of the traditional V-up exercise that targets the external obliques and helps to increase the range of motion throughout your hips and lower back. The additional weight will add strength and stability gains throughout the shoulder complex.

Lie flat on your back with your arms straight behind your head holding a medicine ball with your legs extended.

As you exhale, simultaneously lift one leg and torso off of the floor, bringing your arms forward until the ball touches your toe. Inhale and reverse the movement to return to the starting position. Repeat alternating legs.

Seated Medicine Ball Trunk Rotations

Hello, dears!

Have you missed my exercises? I hope so :)

This is a good and easy exercise for beginners who want to tone their abs. If you haven´t a medicine ball, use a light dumbbell or any other object. 2-3 kgs should be enough.
Sit on your mat with your knees slightly bent, feet together, and heels on the floor. Sit as tall as possible. If you have tightness in your back and legs, sit on a cushion or a rolled mat in order to lift your hips and help facilitate a straighter spine. Hold the medicine ball close to your body between your navel and your rib cage. Use your breath to help engage the muscles of your core.
Exhale and slowly rotate your torso to one side. The ball should stay in place through the entire exercise. Do not allow the ball to drop toward the floor. Pause briefly at the end of the twist, inhale and then gently exhale while rotating completely to the opposite side. Repeat the movement back and forth.
