Abdominal Exercise Ball: The ball is a quintessential part of pilates equipment. It’s also called an Exercise Ball, a Fit Ball and a Stability Ball.
Balancing on top of it (either sitting on your feet, kneeling or standing) is only one part of an exercise regime that can be done using this incredible simple piece of equipment. Doing these exercises, because you become “unstable”, you’ll find you need to recruit many core muscles that are required for balance.
There are 3 sizes when you come to acquiring a ball – 55cm, 65cm, and 75cm. General speaking, for the following exercises, we use the medium, 65cm size. Leave the small size alone and use the larger size if you are very tall.
