Exercise Ball Routines in 30 minutes!

This Pilates-based exercise ball routine that incorporates flexing, extending, twisting, and side bending to keep your spine strong and flexible.

It also has a variety of positions lying, sitting, side bending, and on your stomach utilizing all angles of the ball and your body to work the arms and legs as well.

I’ll tell you how this exercise ball workout can work for you:


From a sitting position you will warm-up the spine by flexing, extending, rolling, and twisting.

You will stretch your legs and warm-up the feet and ankles.

From a lying position you will strengthen the core or abdominal muscles helping with balance and body awareness.

In this exercise ball workout you will do Pilates exercises such as the bridge or hip lift with the added challenge of using the ball.

From a side lying position on the ball you will work the waist and oblique muscles. Stretching yourself into a longer leaner you.

Incorporating Pilates exercise ball side kicks from this angle will really work the hips and thighs to tone and lengthen them.

From a stomach on the ball position you will work to increase your core strength and balance along with upper body strength doing stability ball pushup, jackknife, and opposite arm and leg balance.

This is one of the best exercise ball routines that has it all!

"The results working with the Pilates Core Ball really are amazing! The resistance and unstableness of the ball works on better alignment, isolation of muscles, torso strength, and training the deep abdominal muscles. This is something I recommend to everyone."
-- Kim McGuire
