Stability is the name of the game


Ball exercises are usually used for stabilizer type exercise or workout plans. Exercise balls are lightweight and make the athlete use their core to keep stabilized while performing the exercise. These balls are also called Thera-balls, Big Balls, or Stability Balls. Ball exercises should be performed near the end of the workout as a weak core can interfere with the total useage of muscle fibers.
