When you get caught up in a lifestyle that has you overworked and short on time, it can be difficult to find the time or the energy to fit in any exercise. Fortunately, using Exercise ball chairs as portable tools that are designed specifically to help reduce sitting still, you can still get the exercise you need to fight for good health.
One of the ways that you can do this is by using a Wellness Ball. These are balls that you can sit on instead of using a desk chair. When you use a desk chair, there’s not a whole lot of movement that you can do – even if you’re sitting in a swivel chair.
So you don’t get a lot of opportunities to work any muscle group. But because this is a ball, you have to use your core muscles in order to keep your balance. Trying to remain upright takes effort that works your muscles and burns calories.
On the plus side, too, these balls are portable and you can take them home for an additional workout. Even if you’re too tired to do anything else after work but sit in front of the television, these wellness balls can help.
Using these stability balls can help increase positive behaviors and lessen the effects of AdHD in your special needs kids too. Check out the video below where a teacher has seen improvements in her 4th grade class students since using these balls in the classroom.
You can workout all of your major muscles groups just by using an Exercise Ball. These are durable vinyl balls that are comfortable to sit on, but what some users do is to get the washable cloth covers that you can buy with these.
The cloth covers feel like velvet and slide on and off of the ball easily if you want to remove it. If you don’t like the idea of a freestanding Wellness Ball, you can buy the additional wheeled base that the ball is designed to fit into.
This makes the ball look more like a chair but offers more benefits. It causes users to keep a proper balance, which uses the core muscles. This tightens up the abdomen and also strengthens back muscles.
It does have a back support but this piece is removable. You can also get just a base for the ball in the event that you need it to be stationary to use the ball as extra seating.
