Core Ball Exercises for Being Healthy

Based on your goals of being healthy we recommend you do these exercises 3-4 times per week.

SINGLE LEG RAISE ON STABILITY BALL: (3 sets 10-12 reps)

Sit on ball with feet hip distance apart. Engage your core and lift one leg off the ground at a time.  Hands on hips or placed on top of thighs.

*Challenge takers: Place hands behind head. Be careful to not pull on neck.*

ARM RAISES: (3 sets 10-12 reps)

Sit on sturdy piece of furniture or Core Ball.  Place one or two feet on center of resistance band.  Hold band in both hands.  With straight arms lift the band so you can see your arms in your peripheral vision and return arms to side.

BALL TWIST:  (3 sets of 60-90 seconds twisting from right to left)

Stand with feet hip distance apart.  With arms straight, hold ball in line with chest.  Twist ball from right to left, making sure this movement is happening because you are twisting at the waist and not just moving arms side to side.
