Have a ball at home?

⭐️⭐️⭐️Have a ball at home?⠀
😀⭐️⭐️Start steady….⠀

To perform the shoulder half plank, position yourself with elbows bent and resting under the shoulders on the ball. Lift the hips up in line with your shoulders, drawing in the core muscles to support your back. Hold this position as you breathe normally. If you feel comfortable to do so, roll the ball gently in a circle.

In order to progress onto a full plank, extend both knees.⠀

Now for the side plank.⠀

Side Plank, Beginner⠀
Come on to your side with your knees bent, and prop your upper body up on your elbow on the ball..⠀
Raise your hips off the floor, and hold for 6 seconds.⠀
Rest for 10 seconds.⠀
Repeat 3 to 5 times.⠀
Switch to your other side and repeat steps 1 through 4.⠀

Planks can help improve your posture by strengthening your back, chest, shoulders, neck, and abs. Plus this exercise makes it easier to keep your shoulders back and your lower back in a neutral position while sitting or standing — two vital components of good posture.⠀
