How do I perform a ball crunch?

Lie on a stability ball with the ball placed under your low back, bend your hips slightly and keep your knees lined up directly over your ankles. Your feet should be placed flat on the floor, hip width apart. Extend your back over the curve of the ball and cross your arms over your chest. Draw-in your navel and contract your glutes. Crunch your upper body forward, being careful not to move your hips off the ball. Return to the starting position and repeat.
