Want to train your core? Ditch the Sit ups!

One of my favorite core exercises for training adults and athletes is the stability ball stir the pot. Most people make the mistake of doing a ton sit ups, leg raises, and side bends. The abs are meant to create stability of the spine and help transfer force during dynamic activity.
For this exercise, assume a front plank position with your arms on the ball and your feet out wider than normal to create a stable base. When performing this, draw small clockwise circles with the ball, as you maintain a flat back and squared up hips. Repeat on the other side once completed.
This may look easy, but if you have never done this before, I guarantee you your abs will be feeling this one!
