Exercise of the Week: Stir the Pot

The Stir the Pot Exercise is one of our Anti-Rotary exercises that we program.  One of the functions of the "Core" is to prevent rotation.  While performing this exercise it is important to keep the hips level to the ground and do not rotate. 

  • Start in Plank position with a wide base and your elbows in the center of the stability ball.
  • Keep the abdominals tight and the glutes tight.
  • Imaging you were holding a large spoon and you were stiring a large pot of soup. 
  • Perform 5-10 repetitions in each directions.
Variation:  If you find this exercise too challenging and you can't keep your hips from rotating, skip the stir and just perform a plank on the stability ball.
