Celebrity PT Sarah Maxwell shows us how to blast those abs for the holiday season. So bring on the crop tops – we’re not scared of you any more!

Here are three great moves that you can use to boost your workout routine. “Using the ball you will recruit many additional muscles – some you didn’t know you had, to maintain balance,” says Sarah.


ball pull

Position yourself with your hands on the floor and shins on the ball. Pull the ball towards you by bringing your knees towards your chest. Hold for 2 to 3 seconds. Making sure your abs are pulled in, push the ball back and straighten your legs. Keep your back straight, breathe steady and used a controlled movement throughout. Aim to do 10, building up gradually.


ball yoga and raise

Adopt the same position as the ball pull start position. Raise your left leg, hold for as long as you can and repeat on the right leg. Gradually increase your holding time as you gain strength.


ball roll

Put your arms in front of you and place on the ball with your arms parallel. Pulling your belly button towards your spine and tightening your torso, slowly roll forward. Roll the ball out as far as you can without arching or straining the back. Push elbows into the ball and squeeze the abs to pull the ball back to the start position. Make sure you are moving in a controlled way and breathing steadily. Repeat five times and build up gradually.
