Exercise Ball Workout Ideas

The exercise ball is one of the most versatile pieces of fitness equipment, allowing a range of different exercises to be performed, working many major muscle groups and helping improve overall fitness.  An exercise ball workout is one of the lowest-impact ways to work core muscles, and to tone your body for that desired fit look. 

Here are a couple of top exercise ball workout ideas to keep you going and give you the best start with your exercise ball workout.

Knee Bridge

The knee bridge is designed to tone your buttocks and help stretch out those crucial hamstrings. Lying with you back flat on the floor and your knees bent over the exercise ball (so that they run parallel to the ground), push your hips and buttocks upwards and hold the 36 togel position, before returning back to your original position.  The more accentuated the movement, and the more pronounced the hold period, the more effective you’ll find the knee bridge.

Elevated Push-up

The elevated push-up uses the fitness ball as a mere leg rest, elevating the legs above the height of the shoulders.  Adopting a traditional push-up stance, use the fitness ball to elevate your legs to create more resistance for the move.  This makes each push-up you complete more difficult, and as such is for the more advanced, who already have sufficient upper body strength to easily complete regular push-ups.

Wall Squat

The wall squat adopts the regular squat motion, except does so rolling the fitness ball up and down a wall.  The ball is placed between you and the wall, resting on your upper back/shoulder area.  Pressing against the ball so as to keep it secure, perform the squat.  The slower the squat is performed, the more difficult it will become, and the more impact it will have on the quads, buttocks and hamstrings.
