Stability balls, or exercise balls, are an excellent method to add a little extra challenge to your strength training workouts. As we age, our balance suffers and stability balls help engage and strengthen the core – the muscles mostly responsible for aiding us in mobility.
Live Infinitely Stability Ball
For this routine, you will need a stability ball. I use the Live Infinitely Forever Flex exercise ball. It comes in a variety of sizes. Make sure the on you select is appropriate for your height. The company is highly responsive to questions and I’ve never had a problem with their customer service. The Forever Flex stability ball can hold up to 2200 pounds. Since it’s made with an anti-burst design, you don’t have to worry about blow-outs if it gets unexpectedly damaged. However, I’m not sure exactly how you’d damage this thing! It’s very strong.
It comes with a hand pump, an air valve remover, and an instruction sheet. I found the printable posters especially helpful. While I am accustomed to using exercise balls in my regular fitness routine and own several, I found the routines provided on their website immensely helpful. They have over 30 printable posters, several videos, and helpful information.
In this workout, I take you through several movements encompassing a full-body workout that works the abs, the thighs, hamstrings, quads, upper and lower back, abdomen, arms, and obliques. Since this is just s a quick and dirty video – about 10 minutes long. I only perform one set of five of each exercise. However, feel free to either pause the video between sets to add more – or watch the video through a couple of times.
Also, please keep in mind, I’m just a blogger that likes to stay healthy. So please remember, I’m not a fitness trainer. Please check with your doctor before starting this – or any other – workout – to make sure it’s safe for you.
