A stability ball that feels relatively firm and allows you to sit with your legs at a 90-degree angle will provide you with maximum support.
A stability ball is a simple tool that can tone the belly and cultivate core strength, providing your abdominals and surrounding areas with a varied workout. The presence of belly fat usually means a weak core center. And so, it is essential to not only strengthen the lower core or belly area, but also the muscles that provide stability to this region: the hips, spine and chest, according to MayoClinic.com. To build muscle, keep fat away, and enjoy some recovery time, move through this abdominal strengthening series three times a week. Start with three sets and 10 reps of each exercise. Gradually increase your set and rep amount as you become stronger.
