So life has been hectic this summer and I have not been to as many of the health talks at the chiropractor that I had planned on. But I was able to sneak away to last Tuesdays, with Ryan in tow, and I am glad I did. The topic this time was discussing exercises you can do at home using a yoga ball. This particular topic is hard for me to write about, so I'll just give them main idea.
*The ball can be used to get a total body workout at home.
*By using weights while working out on the ball you can work on balance, core strength, and any other body part of choice.
* Doing exercises in combination can help increase the difficulty (for example, doing a cycle that works biceps, triceps, and shoulders all in the same set)
*Elite 8's- Doing a combination of 8 different ab exercises, one right after the other. This keeps things interesting, works different areas and kills your abs.
Unfortunately, I can't write out all the different exercises I learned. Bottom line is that it gave me new ideas on how I can squeeze in a quick workout, in the living room, while Ryan is taking a nap... and its actually hard work. Now I just need to make sure I actually do it! I need to tighten up my backside and get my teacher arms under control.
