Stability Ball Workout #2

Today is another wonderfully chilly day in North Dakota with snow still on the ground from yesterday; however, it is nowhere near as bad as it was 2 years ago when we moved here.  See the picture below?  That was Oct 27, 2010.  Need I say more?  And, those are not Christmas lights on the deck, they are Halloween lights!!


Thankfully I’m not staring at that this morning!

Today I wanted to work on some more exercises on the stability ball.  I love the way I can work my core during the whole workout and these are some of my favorite moves that I’ve been doing for years.  Below is the workout I did.  I ended up doing 4 sets of each circuit…I also had 3 cups of coffee this morning.  In case you are unsure of how to do an exercise, I have included links (below) to examples of each exercise.  After my workout, I pulled out one of my trusty yoga videos.  My muscles are pretty tight from this week, and I need to get a really good stretch in.

The scorpion is a favorite.  We did it in our first circuit with Best Body Bootcamp, and I just had to share it with ya!  I haven’t done the scorpion in quite a few years, so it was “fun” to get back into that exercise againWinking smile.  Remember to stretch when your finished!!

Stability Ball Circuit Workout

This morning my little man is sick with a fever, so I hung out with him down stairs and did my workout while he was on the couch watching Madagascar 3.  I must say that I laughed quite a bit at the movie while working out, and it made it even harder for me to keep my balance.

Stability Balls/Swiss Balls are great for exercising and a must for any home gym!  What is so great about them is that they work your core muscles the whole time and make any exercise more challenging.  Stability Balls also help you strengthen your spinal stability, increase muscle usage, and improve balance.  How could you ever go wrong incorporating a stability ball into your workouts?

Each exercise in this circuit workout is done with a stability ball.  If you are not sure how to do each exercise that is not a problem.  Below are links that will show you how to do each exercise.
