Exercise Balls FAQ
There are many ways to make use of an exercise ball. Here is a sampling of exercises you try to get you started.
Ball leg curl (Abdominals, calves, hamstrings)
Lie on your back with the gym ball in front of you. Bring both feet up on top of the ball, ensuring your calves and heels are resting on it. Activating your core and glutes, roll the ball towards you to as close as you can, then slowly straighten your legs back out.
Wall Squat (Abdominals, hamstrings, quadriceps)
Put the exercise ball against the wall, then press against it with your lower back. Carefully lower yourself down, bending your knees and keeping your feet in the same position. Hold the squat for a few seconds then slowly stand back up.
Rollout (Core, shoulders, upper back)
With the gym ball in front of you, kneel on the ground and press your hands together. Place your hands on the exercise ball, then brace your abdominals as you slowly roll forward. Use your forearms to roll back up to the starting position.
Using either the ball pump provided or your own compatible pump, insert the pump’s nozzle in the valve, ensuring that it’s locked correctly in place. Begin pumping the ball with air in short bursts, being careful not to overinflate. To make you’re inflating to the correct size, measure out the size of your exercise ball on the ground and place two items on either side. Begin pumping the ball in between the two objects and stop once the ball is touching both.
Exercise balls are generally safe for use while pregnant, but it’s a good idea to check with your doctor before starting an exercise plan. Strenuous abdominal workouts are advised against, and it’s recommended to stick with workouts with both feet on the floor, making sure you’re stable and upright during the exercise. If you’re concerned about when to start using an exercise ball during pregnancy, know that they’ll be safe to use an at any stage of pregnancy, but preferably earlier on. Some good exercises to try are wall squats, pelvic floor exercises, and ball circles.
