Bud Gibson expanded upon my normal bridge and swiss ball bridge articles to show how to do a swiss ball bridge with a knee tuck. I am definately going to have a go with this exercise; it never even occurred to me to try something like this.

I wrote previously about how I did not like doing a swiss ball bridge with my feet elevated, where I had my feet on a bench and my torso on the swiss ball. The problem came from the fact that the exercise did not seem to make me work as hard combined with an increased risk of hurting myself if I rolled off of the swiss ball. I promptly decided never to bother with that again.

What Bud Gibson and Nancy Arnold are showing, however, involves putting your torso on the bench and your feet on the swiss ball. That seems worth trying just for the sake of trying it. However, they also put a knee tuck into the move, where you roll the swiss ball forward and bring your knees towards the bench and towards your chest. They have some still photos as an example, and include a short video of each of them doing a set.

I will probably not be lifting again this week before my marathon on Sunday, but next week or the week after (depending upon whether I honestly feel I can balance myself) I will have to try this out. Check out Muscle Ventures and let me know what you think of the move if you get a chance to try it before I do.
