The walking lunge with an 8” ball is a great way to strengthen your legs and your abs at the same time. Begin the exercise by standing up straight as you hold an 8” inflatable ball at your waist. Step forward about four feet with your right foot. Bend both knees and lower your body until your right thigh is parallel to the ground. Now twist your torso to the right. Come to a standing position again and repeat the same movements but on the left side. Alternate the lunge and twist on each side for 2 sets of 10 repetitions.

Here’s an alternative to the traditional IT Band exercise done on the foam roller. Start out by sitting on your bottom on the roller. Keep your legs straight and your abs tight throughout the entire exercise. Rotate your torso to the right and place your hands on the floor on the other side of the roller. Now rotate onto your right hip and lift your feet off the floor. You will look as though you are lying on your side on the roller. Move forward and backward for 20 seconds.
