Hold the power ball in both hands and place the ball at the crown of your head with the elbows pointed upward. Flex the abdomen and glutes. Slowly lift the buttocks upward pressing through the heels while simultaneously extending the power ball upward working the triceps. Hold for a 4 second count and slowly return to the start position.
