Ball Crunch “ My Core is at a point where I can do these pretty much ad infinitum, but when I first started out a couple years ago I found them noticeably more difficult than a tradition crunch on the floor. A part of that was due to having to develop balance and stability for performing the crunch while on a sphere.


Ball Biceps Curl “ at high weights I found it a bit easier than normal, since I could sue the ball as a stabilizer.


Ball Rear Deltoid Row “ The only additional difficulty was remaining stable on a sphere.


Hyperextension “ I could feel my stabilizer muscles activating in ways they're not normally required to maintain the proper form.


Ball Calf Raise “ No change in weight, pressing the ball firm as a handle.


Hip Bridge “ I can feel the muscles in my glutes (and lower) back active a lot faster, due to the elevation and need for suspension.


Ball Reverse Leg Curl “ Can get bored doing these without the ball, but with it it adds the extra muscle tension and new focus on balancing.


Alternating Arm-Leg Extension “ Find the difficulty fot his depends more on the size of the ball, larger ones forcing my muscles to work ahrder to stay in place and keep proper form.


Ball Side Crunch “ Similarly to the ball crunch the results didn't really change at this stage, though that's more personal than a general rule.


Ball Push-Up “ I ended up doing a little less because of the added pressure of the incline.


Ball Squat (on Wall) “ Found it to be about the same difficulty.


Ball Row Upside-Down “ Very intense, I found my reps limited due to the necessary focus on not falling off the ball while simultaneously pulling myself up, activating a lot more muscle tension.


Ball Triceps Extension “ No variance in weight was apparent for me.
Stability balls can be a great addition to a routine in general, but are also especially good in rehab situations as they were designed for. They add a greater range of motion to many exercises and help work on one's sense of balance from many angles.
A stability ball is another way to augment resistance training, if someone has no experience
