Walkouts on the stability ball involve a lot of upper body demand and reaction because you'll be continually placing the hands down in a different position. At the same time, our relationship to the ball will change, so stability through the core and the hips will be very important here. Start with your chest on the ball and bend over the ball so your hands are on the floor. Walk yourself across the floor so the ball rolls down to your ankles, at which point you'll stop and now reverse directions, still having to push to the shoulder girdle and still maintain that stability through the pelvis and hips and the upper body.
