9 Stability Ball Exercises for a 30 Minute Full Body Workout!

 You know that stability ball that you have stashed in the closet? The one that your kids kick around the house with their friends. Well, it’s time to put that baby to good use!

We forget about these sometimes or may sit and do a few crunches from time to time. But stability balls (aka exercise balls) are actually a great piece of equipment that you can use for a ton of different exercises.

Not to mention, there are some really great benefits for your body from doing stability ball workouts.

If you don’t have one or need a new one, go check out Dyna Pro’s website! I just got a new one recently and love it! I got the pink one of course!

Benefits of Stability Ball Exercises

  1. First of all, this is a great way to switch things up! Doing the same workout all the time can get boring. Get that stability ball out every once and a while to keep things interesting!
  2. Stability balls work a lot of the little stabilizer muscles that may be missed with your usual exercises. After a good exercise ball workout, you may feel a little extra sore in your upper body, core, and legs. This is because you’re waking those muscles up and putting them to work!
  3. Another awesome thing about this piece of equipment is the fact that it can be used in so many different ways. The versatility allows you to work pretty much every single muscle group with just one piece of equipment.
  4. There are lots of stability ball exercises and stretches that improve back and spine health.
  5. To go along with the previous point, these exercise balls are fantastic for building core strength and improving posture. These are incredibly important because if you’re lacking good posture and a strong core, you are more prone to injury from performing basic everyday tasks!

So as you can see, stability ball exercises have a lot of good to offer and they’re fun! I even like to take some of my regular home workouts and add the stability ball in for a little extra burn!

Check out the Workouts page when your done with this one and find another workout where you can add the ball to certain movements!
