September 28, 2018 | by Kreena Desai

For fitness noobs, a stability ball is an inflated ball used for working out, and it’s hella good! What’s more, it’s great for those who hate going to the gym. Sure, bouncing around on it is super fun, but this simple, no-frills piece of equipment does a lot to help you stay in shape too. If you’re wondering how to work out with it, then don’t you worry, you can click here to learn 10 amazing exercises to do with a stability ball.

So, buy a stability ball, and you won’t need to spend your hard-earned money on a gym membership or step into a sweaty locker room ever again! Here are 5 amazing benefits of exercising on a stability ball, which will definitely get you going.

1. Improves Core Strength

Core muscles consist of the abs, back and side muscles. When you sit on a stability ball you are not relying on any backrest. This enables you to consciously sit up straight using your core muscles. The unstable surface of the stability ball forces your core muscles to exert extra effort in keeping your whole body balanced while exercising, thus giving you a great core workout.

2. Improve Posture

While you work out with a stability ball, not only do you feel the burn in your core, but you also work on your posture. Trust me, if you do it enough, you might just land up sitting in a chair one day, not even realising you have a backrest to lean on for support.

3. Improves Flexibility

Exercising on a rounded surface as opposed to a flat one enables you to stretch your muscles more than you’ve ever imagined. Your body adapts to the shape of the ball, which helps improve the range and motion of your spine.

4. Improves Balance And Stability

Exercising with a stability ball will make you acutely aware of all the parts of your body that are simultaneously being worked upon in a particular position or motion. Like when you are a raising your hand, you will also notice how your core muscles are being engaged. It will naturally help you concentrate on coordinating your muscles, so that you don’t fall off the ball.

5. Relieves Back Pain

It’s impossible to use a stability ball in your exercise routine and not maintain good posture will you do it. This healty habit can help alleviate back pain the long run.
