Hi Danny - a great variation on that core exercise is one I’ve been working on lately. Kneel on the floor with a pad under your knees and place your forearms on a stability ball. Engage your core and roll the ball away, remaining in a straight column from your knees to your shoulders (or ears!). I hold about 30-60 sec, roll back up and repeat 5 or so times. It does work the triceps a little which carries over to my swimming, but the core really gets it!

Minor correction to previous comment - should start with sides of fists on ball, then as you roll out, forearms come onto ball.

What are your thoughts?
