Abdominals and Inner Thighs with Swiss Ball

Lie down and hold a Swiss Ball or exercise ball between your ankles. With your abdominal muscles, push your lower back against the floor. Perform slow leg raises, for ten sets of four repetitions, or more if you are more advanced. Lower the ball to half a foot from the floor. Inhale when you raise your legs. Exhale when you lower your legs.

This works out your upper and lower abdominal muscles and your inner thighs. It works out the latter more if you squeeze your inner thigh muscles while you perform the movement.

My third book, Pocket Guide to Fitness, is available on and If you look up my name on those Web sites, you will find my other books The Boy in a Wheelchair and Life, Work and Play: Poems and Short Stories. These two books are on my Web site and like, if you so see fit, my book page at
