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.

Perform 10 repetitions.

Reverse push-ups

Take a push up position; place your shins on the fit ball. Raise your left leg, while keeping your knee relaxed. Hold this position for 5 seconds, and then slowly come back to the starting position. Perform 15 repetitions for each leg.

Even if you’re a fitness beginner, the mentioned-above exercises are easy to follow. Stick to the exercises for at least a month to start seeing results. Also, combine the exercises with a diet rich in protein, veggies and fruit to see those abs!
