Swiss Ball Posterior Chain Isometric Hold
In the image below you will see osteopathic student and massage therapist/PT Sean Killeen (check him out at https://insta724.com/profile/holistic_fit_byronbay.
demonstrating a swiss ball posterior chain isometric hold. The aim is to essentially hold a neutral spine position against gravity by anchoring against the wall and using the swiss ball. Try this exercise for time i.e. 30, 45 or 60 second holds. More often than not we will see people performing an anterior trunk isometric hold i.e. plank, but this is often not the case with the posterior chain.
A big thanks to Sean for showing and teaching me this exercise.
