  2. Bend your knees so the soles of your feet are on the ball than pop your hips up one more time.
  3. Slowly lower your hips and straighten your legs so that your hips are resting on the floor.

Helpful Hints:
If this method is to difficult you can simple bridge up off the floor or keep your hips on the floor and pull your knees to your chest while digging your heels into the ball. Relax your calves during this exercise.
