Exercise balls are known generically by many names including gymnastic ball, gym ball, stability ball, and Swiss ball, as well as a number of brand names. The exercise ball has been used to treat orthopaedic and neurological disorders for over 40 years. Whilst not new, the popularity of the ball in rehabilitation, sports and general conditioning has increased dramatically in the last 20 years.
The full version of the app is ad free and includes the 30 most effective exercises and 43 amazing muscle rotations plus a zone picker to allow you to select specific areas of the body to exercise.
Benefits of ball training:
The ball is a very versatile exercise tool. It can be used to develop muscular flexibility and joint mobility as well as strength, stability and endurance. The unique features of the ball are its shape and its inherent instability. The shape of the ball provides a support for the body in many flexibility, stability and strength exercises. This is especially evident in exercises for the spinal muscles.
Traditional floor type conditioning exercises such as crunches and back extensions can be done on the ball through a far greater range of motion than is available on the floor. The ease with which the ball moves is beneficial when used as a stretching tool allowing changes in the angle of exercises to stretch tight muscle fibres more accurately.
So, if you’ve always wondered how to use an Exercise Ball to increase your flexibility, stability and strength, then this is the app for you.
You will be mesmerised watching as iMusculus, our anatomically correct 3D virtual athlete, shows you how to correctly and safely perform each Ball exercise.
This is an app you’ll love showing off to your friends and family and will become an integral part of your fitness routine!
