Body Saw with Crunch (TRX or Stability Ball)

  • Suspend the toes in the TRX or on top of a stability ball and position body in a prone plank on elbows.
  • Engage core and open up at the shoulder joint, slowly pushing the body back in a sawing motion. Do not allow hips to sag toward the ground.
  • Pull body forward, lifting hips and pulling knees to chest in a suspended crunch action and then return to the plank position.
