I love the stability ball! I’m always lured into a stability ball workout by the thought of it being “easy.” Honestly, I don’t know how I manage to keep fooling myself with that after all these years, but I still start out thinking I’m not going to get very sweaty every time!
So I convinced myself to do this workout with the promise that it wouldn’t be too tough. And that’s true, it wasn’t the hardest workout I’ve ever done, but it sure wasn’t easy! The thing about balance ball workouts is that you have to balance. (Go figure, right?) But that requires the recruitment of pretty much every muscle in your body, so it’s a super full-body burn.
This is a variation on a workout I’ve been doing for years to help me be a better runner. It works your upper body, abs, and glutes and really focuses on balance strength. Check out the video for tips on form and speed, or feel free to leave me a comment.
