Stability Ball push-up:

What it works: Core, Arms

If you haven’t guess it already, I love my stability ball and use it all the time! The stability ball is great for working on your balance. Balance is an important part of exercise that can be helpful in any sport when it comes to improvement and injury prevention.ย  I found two articles here and hereย if you want to do some more reading up on it.

Here are some great options for working on balance:

Stability ball:

Bosu:

Balancing boards:

I watched our local college basketball team use this Reebok stability board while training at the gym. It seems like a much more affordable option to the Bosu although not as big. I’ve had my eye on a Bosu, but they are spendy, so I will keep using the ones at the gym for now.

Any one else have a favorite balancing move that they love?
