TopicWeight Loss - A Few Notes On The Calorie
It's a great way to introduce instability training into your routine and you can use it to progress your way from working on a stable surface to an unstable surface. For instance, if you are proficient at doing planks on the floor then try progressing to doing planks on the stability ball! Because of its unstable base, using one can increase the strength and stability of your core and it also increases the demand of your muscles to stabilize the body in a proper posture... oh joy! Want another benefit? OK, it also allows for greater range of motion on some movements like doing a crunch on a stability ball by allowing for greater extension through the movement so really, what's not to love about it.
Stability balls come in various sizes and the general recommendation is if you are 5 feet or under then a 45cm ball will be good. 5 feet to 5'7" then go for a 55cm-5'8" to 6' then a 65cm ball should be good. If you are over 6 feet then choose the larger 75cm ball. The perfect size though will allow you to sit on the ball with your feet flat on the ground with your knees bent to 90 degrees and select one that is burst resistant... that's kinda important (need I explain why?)
