How Well-Rounded is Your Stability Ball Workout?

Author: SPRI Master Instructor

If you've ever worked out with a stability ball, you probably know that it's a fun and effective way to exercise. It can add a lot of variety and interest to all types of workout routines. And just by sitting on it, you give you core (trunk) muscles a great workout.

But did you know that today's stability balls offer more opportunities and more benefits than ever before?

"The key to sticking with any exercise program is to keep it interesting for both the mind and the body" says Greg Niederlander, SPRI Director of Education. "With the addition of stability ball training, you can be assured that there is never a dull moment, and you will never run out of fun and exciting program options."

In fact, with the products and instructional videos and programs on the market today, you can incorporate stability balls into virtually any type of exercise routine, including:

  • Yoga and Pilates
  • Cardio and fat-burning exercises
  • Flexibility conditioning
  • Balance training
  • Body weight exercise
  • Weighted resistance exercise training
  • Sport Training

"One of the hottest breakthroughs in training is adding the use of stability balls to your current weight training routine. It makes exercise more fun, and provides you with more of a total body challenge," explains Neiderlander.

With a quality ball, you can safely perform upper body weight training exercises like curls while sitting on the ball. You can also lie back on the ball and perform chest presses with hand weights or a weighted medicine ball. By using the stability ball, you'll be working your core (trunk) muscles right along with the other muscles you're targeting.

But no matter what your interests are and how you like to workout, 'getting on the ball' delivers a whole host of benefits. You can use a stability ball to:

  • Tone your abs and firm hard-to-target muscles
  • Strengthen hips, legs, back, and buns
  • Build core strength
  • Improve balance
  • Increase flexibility
  • Enhance posture

With so much to gain, what are you waiting for? If you're ready to add a new dimension to your workout, read on for an exciting new product from SPRI®.
