Crunches in Comfort!
Why abdominal exercises anyway?
Because, clothes on or clothes off nothing looks better than a nice flat tummy!
Worth doing a few crunches for eh!
So why do we always give up?
Ab exercise is sometimes difficult for older beginners. They are uncomfortable and can be a real strain on the back
Fitness Ball exercise could change all that for you!
I am 62 and consider myself fairly fit but always felt discomfort in my back doing stomach exercises. I have been using a fitness ball now for about a year and find it much more comfortable.
When I lie on the fitness ball it supports my back snugly exactly there, where I used to get the discomfort when lying on the floor.
This video shows some abdominal exercises that are suitable for older beginners. The trainer Nicole gives us some important information about balance and using the fitness ball.
Please take care when doing these exercises.
Because it feels so comfortable building up repetitions is no problem.
Finding your balance and moving on to a full exercise ball workout to achieve a toned body happens in no time at all.
But fitness ball exercise is not limited to crunches
Gaiam Total Body Balance Ball Kit
A workout with weights is excellent for speeding up metabolism and helping you to lose weight. You can sit on the ball in front of a mirror when using weights for the upper body and check that you are doing the moves correctly. For other chest and arm exercises the ball can support your neck and shoulders.
There are some very good books out now with step by step instructions on fitness ball exercise including some more intensive moves you might like to try as you become more proficient. And you will!
Great music motivates and you can watch the exercises first and make sure to use the correct positions. Do something you haven’t done before, it’s what keeps us young.
