I just love the Ball!
Yesterday's workout began with a hard 7 mile tempo run on the treadmill. What will I do when the weather gets nice? Go to the track. Followed by 30 minute weight routine using the exercise ball. I must be the only nut in the gym that uses that ball because of the stares I get. I use the opportunity to show (off) people how to use the ball with weights and perform other exercises. One of my favorite reps is the Alternate shoulder Press. You sit on the ball holding dumbbells at shoulder height and raise left dumbbell up while lefting right leg off the floor. I'm going to have to post some pictures of the fun things I can do with the ball. I finished with an easy steady 20 minute swim for a nice cool down.
