5) Abdominal Tucks with an Exercise Ball; as suggested, these work your ab and core muscles. **CAUTION** this is an inverted position, meaning that you will be practically standing on your hands. If you have high blood pressure or wrist pain from previously broken wrists, DO NOT do this exercise. Find another abs workout to suit you.
The exercise ball (or Swiss ball or physio ball) is a versatile piece of exercise equipment available to help people with back pain. In particular, many exercise ball programs are designed to bring movement to the spine in a controlled manner to help keep the discs nourished. Moving the vertebrae helps nourish the discs in the spine by increasing blood flow around the disc and by causing the water to flow in and out of the disc.
4) Push-ups with an Exercise Ball; we military veterans remember the good old push-up and how its movement worked our arms, chests and upper backs. These are push-ups “on steroids.”
Additionally, the local gym or fitness center is often a good place to find an individual certified in exercise ball technique. In addition to a certified individual, this website, or a video or book will be able to provide helpful information in terms of which muscles are being utilized and which muscles are necessary to achieve specific goals with the exercise ball.
