Exercise Demo: Medicine Ball V-up


Here is a challenging move to incorporate into your ab routine, the medicine ball v-up. Just grab any sized ball that you think is challenging (I used a 4 lb ball here).

When performing the exercise, make sure your abdominals stay contracted throughout the entire move. Once you reach the top of the movement (when toes and feet come together), squeeze your core muscles by trying to pull your belly button down toward the floor.

Start off doing 10 reps and then build from there. If you can ultimately get to 3 sets of 20 reps with proper form, you'll be well on your way to having a rock solid core.

Nice challenging move. I only have an 8-lb med ball, so I'll try this with a light dumbbell instead.

Yes, a lighter dumbbell will work best because these are tough. But oh so good for sculpting those abs!
