Stability balls provide a unique way to get a dynamic workout at the gym or in the home using only one piece of equipment. The benefits of using this simple ball include improved muscle balance and tone, increased core stability, full-body strengthening, rehabilitation for previous injuries, improved posture, and relief of back and spinal discomforts.
Certified American Council on Exercise Health Coach and Personal Trainer Christian Scott offers a simple but effective stability ball workout. She suggests doing three rounds of 10 repetitions of each of the following exercises: abdominal crunches, seated Russian twists, leg lifts, planks, glute bridges and wall squats.
“There are many different options to stay active this year,” explains Scott. “Utilizing a stability exercise ball is a great way to add an effective approach to fitness.”
