Your Top 3 Ways to Make the Most of your Exercise Ball
I realize that most of you have an exercise ball at home. BUT… most of you aren’t using it. So, here’s your reminder. It has so many uses.
I use mine in my office and at home daily, and here’s how:
1. I SIT ON THE BALL WHILE AT MY DESK AND WHILE TREATING PATIENTS
That way, I’m not tempted to hunch forward or lean too far back.
Not to mention, I find myself bouncing and moving my core, which is fun and functional.
2. I STRETCH MY LOW BACK AND UPPER BACK WITH THE BALL
It can be difficult to stretch your low back into a good amount of extension.
Your exercise ball helps to induce a beautiful extension curve (in the video, scroll to the end of the video to find the ball back extension stretch):
It also allows for mid-upper back stretching :
3. I EXERCISE WITH MY BALL
I’m talking strength, ladies.
Whether it’s pelvic isolation while pregnant :
Or core crunches :
Or strength back extensions :
Again, use this as a reminder. Perhaps just implementing one or more of these tips can change your routine and help your pain or discomforts. Happy stretching, strengthening and balancing!
