One of the Nurse Case managers sits on hers all the time during the day. I tried it last night (work nights) I know they make ones that are burst resistant, AND won't roll away. THAT would be something I would need. could not abide the feeling the ball was rolling!!
In addition to doing a stability ball workout, it's also great to sit on while watching television. As I'm sittng on it, I can feel my core muscles pulling and that's great. Also, helps with my posture in sitting up straight.
I have a ball that has been sitting in a corner for a couple years in my computer/exercise (not) room. After reading the comments by SHERPASCHICK & SHADOWPUP about using it as a chair at the computer I immediately exchanged it for my chair. What a great idea. Thanks ladies!!! This article will also help me get going. It looks like fun and I can even take the ball with me to my nanny job.

WOW..THANK YOU.. Super article I cant do them all but I can try and do some.
I do use the ball for alot of stuff due to that I have back problems and nerve damage, so this article is really good..PLEASE MAKE SOME MORE..but at bit more easy for people like me that is sometimes limited to smaller movements.. Besdies that TAHNK YOU!!! Sonia:)
I was searching for some exercises to use my ball for. I was given the idea to use it in place of my computer chair for additional exercise. You are getting a work out and you don't even have to "work" for it. Let me tell you. It has really done some work. I woke up sore this morning after just a couple hours last night and i didn't do anything extra.
this article was very informative for me, especially because I am thinking of purchasing an exercise/stability ball. Would you please discuss the different types of balls available, what they do, what beginners should start out with, and any other pertinent information. I looked for an article, but could not find. Thank you. Lov your articles. nancylee46
I just got my ball this week, and I love it. I'm sitting on it now while I'm on the computer checking my e-mail. It is the most comfortable seat I've got that I can use here. Not only am I able to strengthen my core while sitting on the ball, but I can do some exercises while I'm online. That's definitely a plus for someone, like me, who has a hard time fitting in any exercise.
These exercises are great! I wish they would be added to the rest of the exercises to add to plan!! That would be very helpful. Also if there was a whole set of back exercises or pilates exercises that could be added. Every time I come back to this site it is better!
