This exercise is great for strengthening your back and an ideal exercise to prepare for low-backed party dresses.

Exercise 2:

The bigger the fit ball, the harder this can be as you need to find the right spot.

Start by kneeling on the ground with the fit ball tucked in under your torso and against your hips. Roll your body over the ball with your hands behind your head, looking down.

Raise your upper body and twist to one side. Return to the start and repeat on the other side.

If you want to add some resistance and have a strong core, add a weight or medicine ball (hold it in your hands out in front). But only do this when you have truly mastered the base core exercise and strength. You should not feel any pressure on your neck.
