Shape Up Those Legs & Abs With This Exercise Ball Workout
This second exercise ball workout will help you develop strong and sexy legs. There's a few different leg exercises, including some exercises to firm up those inner thighs.
We've also added in some great core exercises. It never hurts to add abdominal and lower back exercises to a workout. They're such important muscles so it's good to train them often.
- Single leg thigh dip
- Exercise ball liftovers
- Shoulder stand inner thigh squeeze
- Exercise ball crunch
- Single leg calf raises
- Rolling leg raises
Single Leg Thigh Dip (Leg behind)
Be careful doing this thigh exercise. If it's not done properly you can damage your knees. It's easy to do it safely though...
See how Tom's knee is vertically above his foot. That's good technique. You just need to make sure your knee doesn't go past your foot.
Exercise Ball Liftovers
This exercise is good for your abs and it's also very good for the flexibility of your back. Do this exercise slowly and with perfect control. We don't want you getting injured do we now.
Shoulder Stand Inner Thigh Squeeze
This is just like the shoulder stand found in Yoga. You shouldn't do this exercise if you're menstruating. If you are... instead just lie on your back with your legs straight in the air and squeeze the ball from this position.
Exercise Ball Crunch
This exercise can take a bit of adjusting to get your position just right. Keep putting the exercise ball in different positions on your back until it feels good. You'll know it's right because the exercises will burn a lot more.
Single Leg Calf Raises
This exercise uses the extremely versatile selecttech dumbbells. If you don't have any dumbbells you can use any weights that are heavy enough and you can hold onto comfortably.
Rolling Leg Raises
This exercise is great for your lower back. In fact it's pretty good for your entire body because you have to make sure you're balanced.
That was the second exercise ball workout. Hopefully you gained something useful from it. Remember, you can always mix and match the exercises that you like the best, and the ones which support your fitness goals.
Just in case you haven't seen the other two workouts, here they are...
