This is me and a stability ball at the FIT gym at the W Hotel. I have forced myself to do my workout today as I did not find the motivation. Therefore I like to follow a workout program so I have something to follow and do not quit after 15 min. because of laziness and finding other things more interested.
I have been very satisfied with working out with this stability ball. It can be quite intense and make you body shake but that just means that you are getting result.
Here are four different exercises which I do with the stability ball. I usually do all the exercises and then I do some running before and after and finishing off with some stretch out.
// Stability ball Pike: First, find the balance when getting the legs up on the ball. then lift the butt up with the strength of the legs while keeping the hands steady. This is a hard one but your stomach will thank you after.
// Stability ball crunches: Sit on the ball with your knees aligned with your hips and do small “crunchy” push-ups. I can feel the small muscles in my stomach working.
// Stability Ball leg curl: Lie down on the floor on a yoga mat. Then place your feet on the stability ball, raise your hips and then curl your legs in and out. You can feel it in your hamstring and buttocks. I love this exercise!
I do 3 repetitions of 15.
// Stability Ball Pass off: Lie on the floor on your mat and then squeeze your legs around the ball and then move from above your head and pass it over again and then lower the legs. This is a really hard exercise if you ask me.
I do 3 repetitions of 10.
And rememebr to take all the breaks you need in between, it is the exercises that counts!
