Stability Ball Exercises

Each day you try to do your best.  You do as much as you can - work, run errands, hang out with friends, etc.  You attempt to achieve balance and avoid feeling unstable.

To achieve stability in life, you gotta make sure you're on the ball- the stability ball! Doing exercises on a stability ball will increase your muscle tone, help your balance and posture, and give you the added benefit of strengthening your entire core (abs, obliques, lower back and hips).

Before your work out, find the appropriate stability ball for your height. The simplest way to find a good fit, is to take a seat and bounce a little to make sure it's properly inflated.  Look at your thighs and make sure they're parallel to the floor when you're fully seated.  The firmer the ball, the more difficult the exercises will be.

Tone and stabilize your legs and core with these two exercises:

Stability Ball Leg Raise: 

Lie on a mat with your hands at your sides, palms down, legs together, calves on the ball.  Slowly raise your butt in the air until your entire body is relatively in line.  Slowly raise one leg up until it's pointing straight in the air, and then lower back to your starting position.  Alternate left and right legs."

Stability Ball Ab Roll: 

Place arms parallel to one another on ball. Pull belly button towards spine, roll forward until your chest touches the ball. Pull body back using arms/abdominals. Don't arch your back. Repeat 8-10 times.

Pay attention to your center- where all movements in your body begin.  A weak core can make you susceptible to poor posture, lower back pain and muscle injuries.

You have the power to strengthen your core...inside and out.

Remain stable and get on the ball.
