I like to do a plank using the stability ball - I prop my legs up on the ball and put my hands on the floor in a pushup a position and hold it for a minute

Use the workout generator to come up with some new exercises. Click "Swiss ball" for stability ball exercises.

One of my personal favorites with the ball is the pendulum. Lay on your back, put your legs in the air and the ball between your ankles. Arms by your side then slowly swing your legs left and right like a pendulum.

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

I'm an rn and I do have clearance. Cardiologist wants strength training and PCP wants cardio. I'm good and feel great just bored with my routine.

Hi,

With your medical history it may be best for you to contact your doctor to get medical clearance as to what exercises he/she would recommend for you.

I love using my stability ball. When I started, about a month ago, I began doing 3 sets of 15 crunches. I am up to 4-5 sets of 50, at least 4 days a week. I have been able to do the back extentions and upper body toning with the ball, as well as the hamstring stretches. I do leg extentions with my weight bench, bicep curls, and tricep curls. Here's where I could use some input. I have a bad ligament in one knee, a nodule on the achiles tendon of the opposite ankle and a clavical that likes to pop out of place. It's been years since I have worked out on a regular basis but I found out I have a heart valve issue so decided it's time to get my out of shape butt back in at least decent shape. I have been doing 50-75 minutes at least 5 days a week but I need ideas for some new low impact cardio and toning. I like doing both, cardio and strength but am just getting bored with what I'm doing. Input please emoticon
