Calories Burned:  272 calories per hour   (based on a body weight of 150 lbs.)
Primary Muscles Trained:  Biceps Femoris (Hamstrings)
Secondary Muscles Trained:  Spinal Erectors
Instructions: 
Lie on your back on the floor and place your lower legs on a Swiss ball.  
 
Push your hips up so that your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees. 
 
Without allowing your hips to sag (keep with your body at all times), roll the ball as close as you can to your hips by pulling your heels toward you. 
 
To make it harder, perform the same movement with just one leg, holding the other leg in the air above your hips.
