We figured it was time to showcase a great piece of equipment, the stability ball! So here’s a workout all about this fancy object!

WORK IT WEDNESDAY WILL FEATURE A NEW WORKOUT FOR YOU EVERY WEEK, ESPECIALLY BENEFICIAL FOR OUR DANCERS!

The stability ball is a great piece of equipment that we use often. We decided to create a circuit using just it to show some extra love. You can mix in any other Work It Wednesday if want a longer workout. For this we just did all three exercises in a row, max reps (We were shooting for 15-20 reps per side. Then about 30-60 sec rest, and repeat 3-4 times.

  • SBall Push-up: This move is more about building up shoulder stability than simply getting better at push-ups. It’s very hard to stabilize. So first get comfortable holding a plank. Once it’s easy start adding very small elbow bends with elbows staying below your shoulders. Build up going lower & lower, with holds at bottom as able.
  • SBall Hamstring March: Great move to protect your hamstrings. Reverse plank with heels on the ball. The higher the ball is on your leg, the easier the move gets. Also, having hands out on the floor also increases ease. Simply march and try not to lose any of your hip extension each lift.
  • SBall Plank w/ Toe Tap: Featured Move It Monday a month ago, this is a great core builder. Don’t let your lower back arch and try to limit sway/rotation of the hips. Only reach leg out as far as you’re able.

Work It Wednesday will feature a new workout for you weekly to try! Tested with our dancers & by us!
