Start with keeping the ball above your head and hold it in your hands. Move the ball bringing it above your chest. Simultaneously move your legs up to meet the ball.
Then keep the ball in between your ankles. Try to bring the ball down with your legs as you move your arms back above your head. Repeat this exercise ten to twenty times and you’ll be flat in no time.
