Fit Tip Tuesday - Using a Stability Ball

The stability ball is where it's at folks! There are so many benefits to it like strengthening your core muscles, improving flexibility, improving your balance, and adding variety in to your weekly workout routine.

If you generally use a bench, try a ball this week. You can do pretty much anything that you would do on a bench, on the ball. It causes you to activate your core and lower body muscles tightening them up, which helps to tone. I enjoy using a stability ball because it's harder to balance on, which makes me have to slow down my movement, really concentrate on what I'm doing and push a little harder!

A stability ball is a great addition to your home for those of you who don't have a gym membership and even those of you that do!

Here are some fantastic exercises you can tryout this week using a stability ball!

Get at it!! And Happy Tuesday!

  1. This sounds like a good addition to the workout rotation...I've never used my fitness ball for anything but crunches, so I'd love to use it more often. And I like 15 minute increments as those are easier to work into my schedule.
