How to Lose Weight with an Exercise Ball
Hi, I’m Lisa, your “virtual” yoga coach. Today I’m going to show you how to lose weight with an exercise ball. Even if yoga has a lot of benefits for a healthier lifestyle, when it comes to weight loss, it’s all about calories in and calories out. Let’s take a look at some exercises you can do with a stability ball to help you burn calories and shed those extra pounds!
1. Cardio with the Stability Ball
- Squat tap:
Lift the stability ball overhead while performing squat taps. This engages your entire body and gets your heart rate up.
- Squat with ball lift:
Perform squats while lifting the ball up and down to get a full range of motion and increase calorie burn.
2. Upper Body Strength Training
- Stability ball push-ups:
Place your hands wide on the ball and perform push-ups. Start with your belly over the ball and gradually progress to your toes for a more challenging workout.
3. Abdominal Exercises
Place the middle of your back on the stability ball, place your hands behind your head, and perform crunches.
- Oblique crunches:
Perform side-to-side movements to target your internal and external obliques.
- Circle crunches:
Do big circles on the ball to engage your entire core.
