How to Approach this Exercise Ball Website

As a physical therapist my primary concern is injury treatment and prevention. If you are new to exercise ball exercises I recommend approaching this site in the following fashion:
    1. Core Anatomy
    2. Core Stabilization
    3. Core Instability
    4. Before the Exercise Ball
    5. How to buy an Exercise Ball
    6. Precautions
    7. Instructions
    8. Basic Program
    9. Exercise Progression

 As an athlete with excellent core stability you will generate greater power, and strength in any off balance situation. You will run, swing, jump, and swim with greater efficiency. You will be able to apply the strength you have developed in the gym more effectively in functional and competitive situations.

Whether you have never exercised a day in your life or you're a professional athlete, you can benefit from strengthening using the exercise ball. The free exercise ball exercises presented here represent a combination of the latest concepts from both the physical therapy realm and the physical conditioning world and are accompanied by illustrations. We try to review both the theory and rationale behind the ball exercises and present them with detailed instructions and photographs.

I've included 173 exercise ball exercises with over 300 illustrations detailing exercises that require nothing but an exercise ball. I've included a variety of sample exercise ball workout programs for individuals with different levels of experience and involvement in sports.

As a physical therapist I am regularly approached by my patients for a good source of free exercise ball exercises. Web sites of sufficient caliber are sparse, brief, incomplete, and full of advertising. I decided to start this web site to fulfill this need for free ball exercises.
