Stability Ball Exercises

  • Leg Curl

    This is a great cross-training alternative to a hamstring curl machine at the gym. It challenges your stability muscles because the ball will want to roll.

  • Leg Extension

    This challenges your balance while strengthening your quadriceps and your core.

  • Lunges

    This develops leg strength as well as arm and core strength while you work one leg at a time.

  • Oblique Crunches

    These are more effective on the ball than on the floor, a common exercise, because you have to maintain your balance while you twist to the sides.

  • Oblique Engagement

    This is a very effective exercise if your back is stiff and you want more range of motion with your torso. It is simultaneously a tough workout for your obliques.

  • One Leg Stand

    This is a good practice for people of all ability levels. Holding the ball is challenging because you won't be able to use your arms to help you find your balance.

  • Overhead Tricep Extension

    With this exercise, you can concentrate on your form since you are seated on the ball, which supports your body weight while giving you a subtle core workout, and working one arm at a time.

  • Pike

    A hard variation of plank exercise, this will develop upper body and core strength.

  • Plank

    This works your transverse abdominals, back, and triceps and can help build strength to do push-ups.

  • Prone Hamstring Curl

    This works your hamstrings and your chest and arms while being slightly more gentle on your knees than the leg curl.
