Balance With Ball Roll



  • Position the ball on the ground close to your feet. Stand behind the ball with your hands on your hips, or straight out from your shoulders for balance assistance.

  • With your left leg straight, place your right foot on top of the ball with your knee bent, then roll the ball away from you until your knee is straight and foot is flexed. Roll the ball towards you returning to starting position. For challenge, hold a weighted medicine ball in front of your chest.

  • Hips 

  • Thighs 

  • Erector spinae, Gluteus maximus

  • TIP: Start trying this balance exercise by lifting just one leg off the floor and touching that foot to the ball.
