Have a Ball
Get on the ball.
The physio ball, that is.
At first glance, it may look like a combination of a beach ball and a bean bag, but for many of you female fitness freaks, the physio ball is an exciting new apparatus designed to add some spice to your workouts.
The physio ball is ideal for many exercises in that it conforms to specific positions of your body that are necessary in performing an exercise. The physio ball also provides you with additional support that you’ll need to work out with while it relieves your joints of unwanted stress.
Here’s an exercise you can perform with a physio ball, designed to shape your glutes:
Roll onto the physio ball so that your waist is directly on the top portion of it. Your legs and upper torso should be balanced perfectly on top of the ball.
Maintain a push-up position above the ball, placing your hands onto the floor at your sides so that your elbows are bent at a 45-degree angle. You want your legs to be extended behind you.
With your knees straight, slowly lift your legs behind you, pointing your toes. While your legs are lifting, you want to squeeze your glutes while you exhale. Keep raising your legs as far as they can go and squeeze firmly during the extraction.
Slowly lower your legs to the starting position and repeat the motion. Try 3 sets of between 16-20 reps for an excellent sculpting routine.
