  • Stability Ball Stomach Exercise

    If youare  interested in a more advanced exercise to engage your stomach muscles while sitting on a Swiss ball. The exercise you described involves using two Swiss balls, one between your knees and one in your upper arms, to perform a crunch motion.

    To perform this exercise, follow these steps:

    1. Sit on the Swiss ball with good posture, ensuring that your feet are flat on the ground.
    2. Place one Swiss ball between your knees, squeezing it to engage your inner thigh muscles.
    3. Hold the other Swiss ball in your upper arms, keeping your elbows bent and close to your body.
    4. Begin the exercise by contracting your abdominal muscles and lifting the ball in your upper arms up behind your head.
    5. Slowly lower the ball back to the starting position, while maintaining control and engaging your core muscles.
    6. Repeat the movement for 10 to 15 reps, aiming for two to three sets.

    By incorporating the Swiss balls, you are adding an extra challenge to the exercise, as it requires more coordination and stability. This exercise targets your stomach muscles, specifically the psoas muscle, which connects to your low back and goes through the groin. It can help strengthen and tone your core muscles.

    Please note that it's important to consult with a qualified professional, such as a kinesiologist or a physiotherapist, before attempting any new exercise or if you have any underlying medical conditions or injuries. They can provide personalized guidance and ensure that the exercise is suitable for your specific needs and abilities.


  • Low Back Exercises - Tubing Assisted


    It seems like you're describing a variation of an exercise that involves using a Swiss ball to activate the psoas muscle and strengthen the low back and groin. The psoas muscle is a deep muscle that runs from the lower back to the groin area, and it plays a role in hip flexion and stability.

    To perform this exercise:

    1. Place a Swiss ball between your legs, preferably around the mid-thigh area.
    2. Assume a squat position with your feet shoulder-width apart and toes pointing forward.
    3. Engage your lats by pulling your shoulder blades down and back, as if you're trying to put them into your back pockets.
    4. Begin the movement by slowly squatting down while keeping the Swiss ball squeezed between your legs. As you squat, focus on activating your psoas muscle by feeling the tension in your low back and groin area.
    5. Hold the squat position briefly, maintaining good form and feeling the activation in your low back and groin.
    6. Return to the starting position by pushing through your heels and extending your hips and knees.
    7. Repeat the exercise for 10 to 15 repetitions.

    Remember to maintain proper form throughout the exercise. It's essential to keep your back straight, chest up, and knees in line with your toes during the squat movement. If you experience any discomfort or pain, it's advisable to consult with a qualified physiotherapist or healthcare professional for guidance and assistance.



  • Tricep Exercises On A Stability Ball

    you're describing an exercise using small Swiss balls to target the triceps. Placing your hands on either side of the Swiss ball, you engage your core, squeeze your glutes, and activate your hamstrings to lift the ball up and over your head. By keeping your chest in a high, upright position, you can effectively work your triceps.

    Maintaining proper posture and form is crucial when performing any exercise to ensure you're targeting the intended muscles and avoiding potential injuries. It's always a good idea to consult with a personal trainer or athletic therapist who can guide you through proper technique and provide modifications if needed.

    Additionally, you mentioned seeing a family physician, physiotherapist, or registered dietitian. These healthcare professionals can be valuable resources for addressing any specific conditions, injuries, or overall health concerns you may have. They can provide personalized advice and, if necessary, refer you to other specialists or practitioners such as kinesiologists to support your health and fitness goals.
