Our Top 8 Stability Ball Exercises
Klutziness and a frugal streak keep me from using much in the way of workout equipment, but a stability ball is my one exception. Once I (literally) stopped rolling off it at the start of each new move, I felt how awesome exercise balls are for developing balance and stability while making it easier to target specific trouble spots. Check out these top moves from the FITNESS video library.
I fell and laughed and worked the hell out of my quads and calves trying this move. Way fun.
- Stand behind a stability ball on floor, legs slightly wider than hip-width apart, toes turned out.
- Squat all the way down, bending knees deeper than 90 degrees, and place hands on either side of ball.
- Press elbows into insides of thighs to deepen the stretch.
- Pushing off with your legs and glutes, jump as high as you can, pointing toes and straightening your legs while lifting ball overhead, arms extended.
- Repeat 5 to 8 times.
