A stability ball workout is the perfect way to get in a total body workout right in the privacy of your own home—in minimal time. Using a stability ball to perform exercises forces you to maintain balance which, in turn, increases the difficulty of the move. It also requires that you use your core muscles for balance, strengthening the abdomen and back. All you need is your stability ball, light dumbbells and a little motivation and you’ll be on your way to having a ball!
