4 Ways A Small Ball Can Improve Your Workout

Tip of the Week: 4 Ways A Small Ball Can Improve Your Workout

A small ball is a great prop to add to your home gym! They’re inexpensive, compact, versatile and can be picked up at your local dollar store. Here are 4 ways a small ball can improve your workout:

#1 – Does your neck tense up during Pilates abs exercises? Placing the ball under your head and upper shoulders helps support your head, so you can concentrate more on drawing in your abdominals.

#2 – Bridges, already an amazing butt exercise, get even better when you squeeze the ball between your knees, activating your inner thigh muscles.

#3 – To avoid letting your stomach push toward the floor when planking, place the ball underneath your lower abdomen. Maintain only enough contact that the ball doesn’t roll away. Don’t relax onto it.

#4 – The same technique used in plank can help you do a better side plank. Placing the ball under your hip, keep light contact without squishing the ball.
