NON-SLIP RIBBED BODY STAYS PUT WITH SKIN CONTACT: The PVC body has a matte surface with horizontal ribs contoured all around it -- making it easy to hold without slipping while tossing, bouncing or squeezing the ball even with profuse sweat.
Sitting — Exercise Ball Chair
Practice perfect sitting by replacing your desk chair with an exercise ball. When you sit on top of an exercise ball, your body is constantly making small adjustments to remain balanced. In other words, you are working a large group of muscles doing so, thus gain strength in your core muscles. These core muscles connect your upper and lower body together. They also help support and protect your spine and back. Strengthening these set groups of muscles in turn will help improve your posture and reduce your risk of back injuries. Also especially for patients with lower back pain, using an exercise ball as a chair is proven to be beneficial.
Better Balance Improve your balance with ball exercises—balance is the ability to maintain one center of gravity over his or her base of support. The unstable surface of the ball forces your body and muscles to heighten their readiness.
Stretching An exercise ball can work great as a tool to deepen stretches or support your body in a difficult position. The ball can help to lengthen the front of your body by reclining with your back on the ball.
Ball exercises The exercise ball is a versatile piece of equipment that can be used to train your entire body effectively. It can also be used to enhance a movement you are already familiar with by adding some instability.
