Stability Ball

A month ago, while we were buying stuff at Walmart, a mass display of Cory Everson's Pilates Set worth 20 bucks held my interest. This includes (2) 2 lb. toning balls, workout DVD, exercise wall chart, light resistance latex band and of course, the 65 cm. anti-burst stability ball. We bought it but after using it twice, I became lazy and forgot about it. It wasn't until this afternoon that I notice it again, resting idly in the corner of the computer room. I thought I should start using it again, afterall, there's a lot of benefits that this ball has to offer. It can improve muscle strength and endurance in all of the major muscle groups. Training with the ball can improve muscle tone, increase muscle endurance and strength, restore or improve flexibility, enhance spinal stability, complement one's resistance, help lose weight, and lastly, improve your balance, posture and coordination. The ball is also ideal for stretching and offers additional options to traditional static stretching. Traditional stretching usually requires you to stretch on the floor and it can be difficult to move into and out of stretching positions.
