Begin by lying on your side and push up so that your body is supported by the right arm in a side plank.  Stack the feet for more intensity or stagger the feet for an easier modification.  Straighten left arm and balance for a moment, then sweep the left arm down and twist the body, turning it towards the floor while keeping the rest of the body in place. Squeeze the abs and hold for 2 seconds, then go back to starting position. Complete all reps before switching sides.

Reps/Sets/Duration: 1-3 sets of 12-16 reps

Ball Rollouts

Lie face up with lower back pressed to the floor. Cradle head in your hands, elbows out, and bend right knee, pulling it towards your chest while touching the knee with the opposite elbow. Begin a slow pedal motion by touching opposite elbow to opposite knee, alternating each side. Keep the abs pulled in and breath continuously.  

Reps/Sets/Duration: 1-3 sets of 12-16 reps

Modification: Try this modified bicycle for less intensity.

Deadlifts

Hold a barbell or dumbbells in front of thighs, feet hip-width apart and abs pulled in. Tipping from the hips and keeping the weight close to your legs, lower the weight to mid-shin (or wherever is comfortable) while keeping the legs straight (but not locked). Lift back to starting position and make sure the abs are pulled tight throughout the movement. 

Reps/Sets/Duration: 1-3 sets of 12-16 reps

Modification:  Hold the band at different points to find the perfect amount of tension for this exercise.

Back Extensions on the Ball

The back extension on the ball can be done in a couple of different ways. Lie down with the ball under the belly and hips, legs straight out behind you (or knees bent for a modification).Place the hands behind the head or under the chin - you can also keep the hands resting on the ball if you need a modification.Round down over the ball and then squeeze the lower back to lift the chest off the ball. Raise up until the body is straight (don't hyperextend), lower down and repeat.
