VIDEO: Tighten & Tone Stability Ball Workout | Full Body, At-Home Exercise Routine

October 25, 2017

Time to get your FULL BODY SWEAT ON.

 

From the comfort of your own home!

 

Or outside, whichever you prefer. It was SUPER windy on the day I filmed the demo video below. Other than that, the weather was perfect and I love taking my workouts outside for a breath of fresh air.

 

A couple of weeks ago I did a segment on Better Kansas City about the benefits of using a stability ball in your workouts. I absolutely love this piece of equipment for four main reasons:

 

1. It is SO versatile.

2. It is super affordable.

3. It is convenient to keep in an at home gym and take with you on the go.

4. It engages muscles in your core that enhance stability and balance.

Seriously, if your at home gym is missing a stability ball: go get one! They are versatile, affordable, and super effective for engaging those smaller stabilizer muscles we might not typically reach otherwise. Stability balls have been proven to improve your posture, enhance your balance, and strengthen your core. If you have a sedentary job, you can make a simple swap and trade your desk chair for a stability ball to engage your core throughout your entire work day.

 

I found this green stability ball at Dick's Sporting Goods for $9.99. They can range anywhere from $9.99 to $19.99 or a little above, but they are SUPER affordable pieces of equipment that can be used in different ways to target pretty much every major muscle group in the body. You can use a stability ball from the warm up, to the actual workout, to your stretching routine afterwards.

 

Watch the video below for a full body toning workout with only a few pieces of equipment: a stability ball and a set of dumbbells.
