Two for You!

Here are two stability ball exercises you can do anytime, anywhere to strengthen your core and inner thigh.
That’s the purpose of our exercise blog…to introduce new and fun exercises that you can do at home with little or no equipment because we know you can’t always get to the gym!
Exercise #1: Stability Ball Inner Thigh Squeeze
Begin lying on your back and pick up the ball between your ankles. you legs should be as perpendicular to the floor as possible with knees just slightly bent. Squeeze the ball tightly between your ankles and hold the contraction for a count of five. Then relax, but don’t drop the ball. Repeat 5-10 times.
Exercise #2: Stability Ball Reach Over
Begin lying on your back holding the ball between your hands with the ball directly above your face. Then slowly reach overhead hinging from the shoulder and lower the ball to the floor. To make this an effective core exercise, take care not to allow your back to arch or your ribs to pop up when your reach. Exhale as you reach over this will help you to engage your core (especially your transverse abdominis)
