    What are yoga ball hyperextensions?

    What does "long neck" refer to? You did a nice amount of kicking today.

    Focus on keeping the neck long, leading with the head type of thing. Probably something many here do without thinking.
    Lay over the ball hands and forearms on floor in front form a triangle and brace, raise legs up so that you're kind of like this:
    ........._ .........../
    start:/o\ finish: /o

    What other blog gives you Lowry stick men for examples?

    Oh, OK, I do something similar called jack knifes with my feet on top of the ball instead of raised in the air.

    Here's the stick figure:

    /0\ -> / 0

    My stick figure won't come out ... lol The top line looks right until I press save ...

    Fort, it appears as though you self destruct when you use the yoga ball! I trust that you were able to re-attach your arm (or leg)!:-)
