You might associate a stability (or exercise) ball with aerobics videos from the 80's but this piece of equipment can still be used to perform some killer exercises.

The moves:

Overhead squat: The key to nailing this move is to keep a neutral spine. This means keeping your core switched on and ensuring there is slight curvature through your back. Don’t go any lower than the point at which your lower back rounds out– for most of us this is when our knees are at a 90 degree angle. Finally, remember to push through your heels and keep your shoulder relaxed and away from your ears.

Plank pike: This move is a core blaster! Before starting, spend some time establishing a stable plank hold. Once you feel confident, use your feet to move the ball towards your hands, pushing your butt up into the air as you do so. Keep this movement controlled– there’s no need to rush!

Hamstring curl: This move targets the back of your legs and requires concentration. Keep your core tight as you push your hips up from the ground. Use your hands, laid flat beside you, to keep yourself stable.

Try these three exercises in a circuit. Go for 10 reps each and repeat four times through.
