Increase the intensity of your core workout. Unstable surface of the device makes exercises harder for transversus abdominis and internal oblique muscles.
DIAGONAL EXERCISES TO STRENGTHEN INTERNAL OBLIQUE MUSCLES:
Rock forward and back following 6-1-6-11 pattern.
6 -1 Tilt forward toward the 6 o’clock marker, then lean back toward 1 o’clock (a back-left tilt).
6- 11 Tilt forward toward the 6 o'clock marker, then lean back toward 11 o'clock (a back-right tilt).
If your most painful spot is located at the 7 o’clock marker, stretch your right leg and slide it a few inches toward the 7 o’clock marker (a forward-right tilt) then lean back toward 1 o’clock (a back-left tilt). Repeat 10-20 times.
If your most painful spot is located at the 5 o'clock marker, stretch your left leg
and slide it a few inches toward the 5 o'clock marker (a forward-left tilt) then lean back toward 11 o'clock (a back-right tilt). Repeat 10-20 times.
EXERCISES TO STRENGTHEN TRASVERSUS ABDOMINIS MUSCLE:
By the time you have completed all of the Basic Exercises, you should have identified the most painful areas of your lower back or hip.
Dividing the clock face into quarters (12 to 3, 3 to 6, 6 to 9, and 9 to 12), you can now target your exercise to these “pain quarters.”
Choose one of four patterns, depending on where your pain is located.
You will need only one quarter exercise.For example, if you are experiencing the most pain in your right hip, do the 6-7-8-9-8-7-6 quarter exercise.
During this exercise, try to locate the precise number corresponding to your most painful spot so that you may target this number in the diagonal exercise.
