Toning Ball Workout

There is fitness work that you can do with a 2-4 lb. toning ball. Do you have one laying around in your gear or at the gym? Might as well include some moves in your daily routine.

Here are 3 Moves to Try

Squat Row

  • Stand holding the ball overhead with your feet hip-width apart.
  • Slowly squat – then pull the ball to the left hip while drawing your elbow up. Hold for 2 beats.
  • Return to the overhead hold and repeat on the right side.
  • This works the legs, back, abs and shoulders.

Ball Push-ups

  • In push-up position, place the ball under the right hand.
  • Hold your core tight with square hips and lower into a push-up position.
  • Roll the ball to the left hand and do your push-up again.
  • Work for an even 8, 10, or 12 push-ups.
  • This works the chest, core, and arms.

Wood Chop

  • Hold the ball with both hands at your chest with your feet together.
  • Leap to the right and land on your right foot with the left toe tapping down in back as you bring the ball up and right.
  • Leap to the left, landing on the left foot while bringing the ball down and left. Repeat.
  • This works the chest, back, arms, core, and legs.

These moves will help you tone and add a twist to your workout routine.
