hi my name is Janet I’m a personal

2
00:00:07,759 –> 00:00:09,620
trainer and massage therapist with

3
00:00:09,620 –> 00:00:11,660
metamorphosis and today I’m going to be

4
00:00:11,660 –> 00:00:14,450
demonstrating the pike on the stability

5
00:00:14,450 –> 00:00:17,029
ball and talking about what muscles it

6
00:00:17,029 –> 00:00:19,759
works i’m going to show you two separate

7
00:00:19,759 –> 00:00:21,590
demonstrations because the first

8
00:00:21,590 –> 00:00:23,509
demonstration would be for someone who’s

9
00:00:23,509 –> 00:00:26,000
kind of just getting started working on

10
00:00:26,000 –> 00:00:27,860
a ball like this can sometimes be a

11
00:00:27,860 –> 00:00:29,989
little bit scary if you’re having issues

12
00:00:29,989 –> 00:00:32,390
with balance so i’m going to demonstrate

13
00:00:32,390 –> 00:00:36,020
first the less demanding way to do it

14
00:00:36,020 –> 00:00:39,430
and then i’m going to show you the full

15
00:00:39,430 –> 00:00:43,340
so what muscles you’re using when you

16
00:00:43,340 –> 00:00:46,040
use a stability ball and you’re doing a

17
00:00:46,040 –> 00:00:49,520
pike you are mostly targeting your core

18
00:00:49,520 –> 00:00:51,710
muscles and your core muscles are not

19
00:00:51,710 –> 00:00:54,410
only the abdominal wall but it is your

20
00:00:54,410 –> 00:00:57,590
math your back muscles as well the other

21
00:00:57,590 –> 00:00:59,510
thing that’s going to be incorporated is

22
00:00:59,510 –> 00:01:02,210
your entire shoulder girdle so the

23
00:01:02,210 –> 00:01:04,188
shoulder girdle is all the muscles that

24
00:01:04,188 –> 00:01:06,800
are surrounding your shoulder joint and

25
00:01:06,800 –> 00:01:08,420
the reason those are brought into play

26
00:01:08,420 –> 00:01:10,070
is because you’re actually holding a

27
00:01:10,070 –> 00:01:12,590
good portion of your weight up with your

28
00:01:12,590 –> 00:01:15,200
arms and shoulders so here comes the

29
00:01:15,200 –> 00:01:18,409
first demonstration this is strictly the

30
00:01:18,409 –> 00:01:20,990
core exercise that does not involve the

31
00:01:20,990 –> 00:01:24,470
pike and so here goes the best way to

32
00:01:24,470 –> 00:01:27,020
get on this ball and still seem like

33
00:01:27,020 –> 00:01:29,510
you’re trying to be graceful is to put

34
00:01:29,510 –> 00:01:31,850
your knees on it and then very slowly

35
00:01:31,850 –> 00:01:35,780
walk your hands out on the floor and

36
00:01:35,780 –> 00:01:38,210
then you’re going to be coming forward

37
00:01:38,210 –> 00:01:40,790
until this ball is right about shin

38
00:01:40,790 –> 00:01:42,799
level now I’m going to scooch it back

39
00:01:42,799 –> 00:01:48,229
just a little bit then what’s going to

40
00:01:48,229 –> 00:01:50,420
happen is I’m going to bring my knees

41
00:01:50,420 –> 00:01:53,689
towards my chest and when I do that I’m

42
00:01:53,689 –> 00:01:55,909
going to be rolling the ball up as well

43
00:01:55,909 –> 00:02:03,290
so here goes that’s it it’s an inward

44
00:02:03,290 –> 00:02:05,240
motion and then you’re rolling the ball

45
00:02:05,240 –> 00:02:07,610
back again so just get used to balancing

46
00:02:07,610 –> 00:02:11,120
on the ball first and then roll in and

47
00:02:11,120 –> 00:02:16,250
back out come on down and that’s version

48
00:02:16,250 –> 00:02:18,379
1 version 2 i’m going to go up into a

49
00:02:18,379 –> 00:02:22,030
full pike and it looks like this

50
00:02:30,900 –> 00:02:33,490
so that’d be the example of the full

51
00:02:33,490 –> 00:02:35,890
pike and again that works the abdominal

52
00:02:35,890 –> 00:02:38,340
muscles the back muscles and your

53
00:02:38,340 –> 00:02:42,100
shoulder girdle i’m janet and thanks for

54
00:02:42,100 –> 00:02:44,050
watching what muscles are worked when

55
00:02:44,050 –> 00:00:00,000
you do a pipe on the stability ball
