Those big blue exercise balls for fitness and other workout balls are still around although not  everywhere these days. I have seen a few in my office and of course almost everyone working in a gym is using one as their primary chair when talking to other people on the gym floor 🙂 . These balls have been around for a few years but I have to think that many people are only using them as a chair and not as a piece of fitness equipment.

I thought just in case someone reading this post is thinking of what they could do to use their workout ball better that I can point people in some kind of healthy direction.

  • Exercises on the ball – Has nine great exercises with pictures that will help you get a full body workout on the fitness ball
  • Bally Fitness has another nine exercises with a picture of the beginning and of the end of each fitness ball based exercise
  • And my personal favorite. The Mayo Clinic has a nice slide show with exercises for the fitness ball that also shows muscles used and a little write up of what the exercise does. 11 slides of fitness ball exercises in total.

Just in case you are wondering if these workout balls are just for fun or are actually functional, all you need to do is sit on one for an hour or so and you will see exactly how great it is for your core (abs, obliques, lower back).

We had one of these workout balls until a couple of years ago. Exactly like the one that you see here and it was great but it got a hole in it (not fixable) and we never got another one. We are planning to get another soon. and then it will be my primary chair in front of my home computer. Using exercise balls for fitness is a great plan for anyone in any family
