Yoga Ball Full Body Challenge

Yoga Ball Full Body Challenge

Yoga balls; also known as exercise balls, stability balls, Swiss balls, physiology balls, are large vinyl balls you can use to stretch and strenghen your body while also improving your core strength and balance.   Working out with a stability ball is a fantastic way to take traditional strength training to a fun, new level.  This is a workout I came up with for my college girls because the yoga ball is such a versatile piece of equipment that is very inexpensive.  They love to do this workout at the rec center in the open area or at their apartment and dorm.  With Spring in the air, I'd love doing this in my backyard too!  All you need is a stability ball and you'll  get in a fantastic, full body workout!  If you are running short on time, go through the circuit one time.  If you would like to really torch some calories, go throught it 3 times.  Each circuit should take you about 12 minutes.  Print this workout and put it on your bulletin board for a great go to sculpt and burn workout!  Have a ball!!!         tee hee!
