An Excellent Guide For Using Stability Ball In Your Workout

Stability balls are excellent pieces of fitness equipment (also known as a Swiss ball or fitball) and their primary function is to strengthen the core muscles. Whatever your exercise goals, you will be guaranteed to work out with a stability ball to advance your fitness.

Regardless of your age, goals, or sport-read on for tips on how to get the most out of your stability ball workout if you want to experience the benefits of a strong core.

Find your core

It is important to 'find your heart' first before you start heart training. Time spent practicing stimulating your core muscles is crucial before advancing into more advanced training.

One of the most successful strategies for initiating core control is as follows:

  1. Place yourself on the floor on all fours.
  2. Relax and bring the navel into your spine to activate your heart.
  3. Alternatively practicing calming and stimulating the core muscles without any other body movement.
  4. Keep breathing steadily all day.

Start core training

When you've reached your heart, you can advance to the next level. All the following exercises are basic but highly successful and should be learned before moving on to more complex moves:
  1. Sit on the ball and maintain a proper upright stance with your feet flat on the concrete. To track your position using a mirror or a friend.
  2. Maintaining this position, push the ball forward, backward and side-by-side with the use of small guided hip motions while concentrating on maintaining good posture.
  3. Return to the starting position; lift one foot from the floor a few centimeters. Reflect on maintaining full upright without side-to-side hip movement.
  4. Try all the exercises with your eyes closed – that's going to make any workout even more difficult.

Moving up – foundation workouts

Kneeling on the ball of stability

This exercise advances your core strength rapidly and combined with balance and proprioception (sense of where you are in space), all contribute to your core fitness level.
  1. Stand approximately 45 cm (18 in) apart with feet.
  2. Put the stability ball on the floor and the knees and shins against it.
  3. Place your hands atop the ball.
  4. Pushing up from the knees, roll slowly with the ball forward until the feet are off the floor and balance is reached.
  5. If you're able to balance, experiment with removing a hand or leg and gradually both hands until you can kneel upright on the ball.
  6. Just a few minutes of practice a day will cause you to progress from being unable to balance the ball at all, to be able to kneel upright completely.

Stability ball floor bridge

This exercise specifically focuses on pelvic core strength, as you counteract the ball's rotational effect. It also exercises the hamstring muscles at the back of the thigh whilst holding your position.
  1. Lay on the floor on your back, arms straightened out on either side of the body.
  2. Place your heels in the center of the ring, the toes pointing towards the ceiling.
  3. Lift the body away from the floor, creating a straight line from the shoulders to the ankles.
  4. Contract the core muscles and keep the pelvis raised to keep the location correct.
  5. Once you are able to hold the position for 60 seconds, try gradually bringing your arms in towards your body until they can be lifted together from the floor, leaving only the shoulders in contact with the ground.

Exercises Modified

After you have mastered the foundation workouts successfully, try out the following more advanced exercises to fully develop your core strength.

Stability single-legged ball floor bridge

  1. Start from the top in place of the foundation stable ball floor bridge.
  2. Slowly raise one leg 45 cm (18 in) from the ball while holding both legs straight and hold.
  3. Keep your pelvis raised throughout, so your elbows, pelvis, and knees stay in line continuously.
  4. Return your leg to the controlled ball.
  5. Repeat with the back leg.
  6. Build up to a keeping on each leg for 60 seconds.

Stability pull-in ball floor bridge

  1. Start from the top in place of the foundation stable ball floor bridge.
  2. Bend your knees in one coordinated movement and draw the ball of support in towards your body.
  3. Keep your pelvis elevated, so that your shoulders, pelvis, and knees stay in line continuously.
  4. Return the ball under control to the starting spot, holding the pelvis elevated all along.
  5. Build up to 2 sets of six repetitions.

Ball-training tips for safety

Always follow the guidelines below to ensure you get full fitness benefits from your stability ball workout:

Size is what it takes

Pick a ball of the right size for you. The majority of commonly available balls are too large with a diameter of 65 cm (25 in), while for most people, a ball of 55 cm (21 in) would have much greater training benefits.

Relax as you workout

Still, maintain controlled breathing. It is normal to hold your breath when exercising when an exercise is difficult. Instead, focus on controlled breathing while maintaining a tight core contraction.

Partner up during training

Getting the most out of your core workout means doing the exercises using accurate and controlled moves. Ideally, partner with a friend who is able to monitor your body position during all the exercises.

Mirror, Look

If you're training alone, it can be extremely helpful to have a mirror monitor your form and technique.

Train bi-weekly

Do your core exercise twice a week for full gains in healthy ball preparation.

Conclusions on Ball Training in Stability

Stability ball preparation should be a key component of everybody's workout plan, no matter which workout benefits your practice. Exercising on a ball is great fun alongside a full set of benefits – and fun should be a part of everybody's workout. If you've never done core exercises before in your workout, try incorporating the exercises into your daily session and you'll be shocked at how easily you 're getting better – and what a difference stability ball training is making.
