Stability Balls

Posted by in News

… only 65 days until the book release!



Stability balls are a great way to strengthen your core while doing other exercises; plus, they are easier on your back when doing crunches than using the floor or an exercise mat.

Exercise balls come in several sizes, but the most common are 55, 65, and 75 centimeters; size will usually be printed on the side or top.  If you are shorter than 5’7”, you’ll want to use the 55 cm; if you’re between 5’8” and 6’2”, you’ll use a 65 cm; and, if you’re taller than 6’3”, you’ll want to use the 75 cm.  Of course these are just guidelines.  If you can, try all of them and see which one feels the best for you.  They will all likely feel a bit awkward at first, but you’ll adjust.

If you are going to do a crunch, you’ll want to start sitting up tall with your feet planted on the ground.  Next, start walking your feet away from the ball and simultaneously roll on the ball so that your middle back is in the center of the ball.  Now, you’ll want to crunch up toward the ceiling while keeping the movement slow and controlled.

There are plenty of other exercises to do with a stability ball, so be sure to check out my websites for more information.
