View Full Version : Squats standing on a fit ball

Yep - that was part of my workout yesterday.

The first round of twenty had the ball up against the cage and I held onto the side of the cage with both hands.

Round two I moved the ball away from the cage, so it could roll freely. I held onto the cage with both hands.

Round 3 was one handed and the ball freely moving.

I finished up with one rep, totally unsupported, no holding on and the ball free to move. :D My legs were pretty shaky at that point so I didn't try a second.

Nice balance! I think I could do that on a bosu (is that the right term? The half balls?) but not the free range spherical ball.

I've seen a guy do that. Several reps, then remind the class "c'mon, circus elephants can do it." :rolleyes: Me, I'm lucky to do a high kneel on the ball.

Nice! With my ankle flexibility I won't attempt this, but that is quite the accomplishment!

That demonstrates some serious core strength, Veronica. Nice work!
