Top Fit Ball Exercises to Lose Weight
Posted in: FITNESS
Weight loss exercises with a fit ball is a great way to get in shape. A fit ball protects your spine and joints from excessive straining, while a well-chosen set of exercises will help you see wonderful results within a short time. Fit ball exercises can be a great cardio workout to make you sweat. If that is what you’re looking for, do the exercises in a circuit manner (performing the exercises one after another with no rest in between them).
Fit ball is a unique fitness equipment. When you perform exercises with a fit ball, you put to work almost all muscle groups, which therefore guarantees a perfect result. Besides, workouts with a fit ball are safe for people that suffer from spinal injuries.
Fit ball has been used since the ‘50s. Swiss doctors (that is the exact reason why a fit ball is also called a Swiss ball) used this fitness equipment to train people that suffer from paralysis. In the ‘70s, having learned about the successful experience of Swiss specialists, American medics introduced exercises with fit balls into their physical therapies. And they were the ones who came up with a set of exercises for weight loss.
Set of fit ball exercises for weight loss:
Before starting the workout, warm up for 15 minutes. You can use skipping rope, do running or cycling. Remember that in order to make fit ball exercises bring you positive results, you must stick to healthy eating and perform these exercises not less than 4 times a week.
