Stability Ball Exercise Demo

StabilityballshotLast week I put up a video that showed a group of exercises that could be performed on the Bosu Ball.

 

One of my friends asked if I could do the same, only using a regular stability ball instead.  So here are some exercises that work most of the main muscle groups using a stability ball.

1. Stability Ball Pushups
2. Overhead Squats
3. Stability Ball Roll Ups
4. Stability Ball Pikes
5. Ball Passes
6. Bridge Hamstring Curls
7. Wall Squats & Holds

There are a bunch more exercises that can be performed on the stability ball, but this should get your started.

10 Things To Do With A Bosu Ball…

bosu_mediasquare

It’s interesting when I see a new person walk into the gym.  It can be painfully obvious if it’s their first time in a gym, EVER. They usually will walk around and timidly look at the machines, hoping to find one that they’ve seen somewhere before.  They’ll get on it or in it, and if they’re lucky, there’ll be a little graphic placard that tries to illustrate the movement and the muscles involved.

Unfortunately, most first timers have a difficult time trying to figure out from these hieroglyphics, just how to correctly perform the exercise.  It’s at this point that I’m hoping they will have the courage to ask for some assistance.  I learned a long time ago not to volunteer to show someone how to do an exercise without being asked. Let’s just say some people’s pride is more important than risking an injury…

Now, when it comes to the Bosu Ball, we’re at a whole new level!  It’s one of those mysterious pieces of equipment that most people tend to ignore.  That’s too bad, because it really is a versatile training tool that can be used in so many different ways.  Here are 10 exercises that you can do with the Bosu Ball that will target your chest, triceps, hips, legs, glutes and core. How’s THAT for versatile?

So now, go have yourselves a ball!  A Bosu Ball!

Stay Fit Forever!
