Plank With Leg Extension; Medicine Ball Raise And Touch:

We mentioned the plank with leg extension briefly in the basics section. From the plank-on-ball position, slowly raise one leg behind you, keeping the leg straight, and then lower it back to the starting position. Alternate leg raises.

To perform the medicine ball raise and touch, start out supine on the mat. Grab the exercise ball between your feet and lower legs and raise it straight up, so that your legs (and the ball) are at a ninety-degree angle to the floor. Grab the medicine ball between your hands and curl up so the head and shoulders are off the floor. Touch the medicine ball to the exercise ball, bring it back down to the starting position and repeat.

This superset cut-down works the full body.
