Full Body Exercise Ball Workout

full body workouts Jun 06, 2019
 

Using the same equipment over and over can leave your workouts feeling stale. Plus, challenging your body in new ways is a great way to up your exercise intensity and increase the burn!

Using an exercise ball to workout increases the instability of your standard exercises to provide a new challenge for every muscle group. Now you're not only focused on lifting the weight but also maintaining proper balance throughout the movement. This means you will also be using your abs for many of these exercises as a synergist muscle to properly maintain balance.

This workout should take you just 30 minutes to complete and works your entire body! Each exercise should be performed in 2 sets of 12 reps with no more than 60 seconds rest in between sets.

Get ready to feel the burn!
