Humpty Dumpty sat on a fitness ball...

Wednesday, June 03, 2009

I found a fitness ball at a discount store and so I bought it. So far I am using it for push-ups. I want to tone my arms but I can't do regular push ups, and push ups on the knees hurt my knees. So the ball helps remove that problem.
I have been bookmarking other exercises that I can do on the ball, but I am bad at balancing. I keep falling off the ball, and I feel like this is going to turn out like Humpty Dumpty...
Are there any good exercises on the ball that would help build up my balance so I can do more?

    I loved my stability ball! sadly, it was the tragic victim of kitty attack and I have not replaced it. You WILL get the hang of it :) I used mine for many of the exercise listed here by Spark People. I did crunches on it, and back extensions and used it for sitting while I used my computer. Leslie Sansone has a good DVD called You CAn DO! Abs for Stability Ball that has 3 12 min segments of things to do and it is for beginners. You will get it, good luck!
