Why use that big ball?
The physio ball (aka stress ball or exercise ball) was used in physical therapy and rehabilitation for years before the fitness industry discovered how important it can be.
It's an excellent tool for stretching the back, shoulders and neck muscles.
Just sitting on the ball helps to improve your posture.
Working your core (back, abs & obliques) on the ball requires more effort than on a flat surface, thereby strengthening more of the muscles and deeper into the core muscles.
The unstable surface while sitting or lying on the ball causes us to use some muscles that we hardly ever use, but shouldn't be neglected.
Exercising with the ball gives us more variety to our routine workouts. Why use a flat bench, when you can use the ball?
They come in different sizes, so it's important to know what size is best for you. I can help you with that, so call before spending the money on the wrong size ball.
Yes, it can be a challenge to use, but it's fun and it gets results.
