If you’ve ever fumbled your way around a workout ball, this is the Saturday Drill for you. Though incorporating new equipment into your fitness regimen can be bit uncomfortable at first, branching out and trying new things will ensure you won’t get bored and lose your enthusiasm for exercise.
Plus, breaking out of your normal routine often adds a new element of challenge that can surprise your body, engage new muscle groups and ultimately leave you fitter as a result.
Here, we outline seven simple exercises all using a workout ball. Try going through all the moves at least once. If you’re really looking for a sweat, repeat it once or twice more.
Additionally, if you don’t have a proper workout ball, you can always make modifications by using a chair or bench for the seated exercises, and a weight or a small ball for the lunges and squats.
