because it is soft. Had to feed the baby right on the ball. As to the loss, and then fitball became indispensable. Like many moms, belly sagged heavily, and on the sides of the formed folds of fat.

The body feels pleasantly tired muscles after a day of relax. I like that there is no load on the joints, back and the ball safe in such chronic diseases of internal organs, as I have. I usually fall on the ball and do crunches, do leg swings, and rolling his back against the wall.

Still loved the positive, feel after class, as if returned to the childhood! The figure turns out to keep in good shape only because of the fitball.

“The result of my workouts on the exercise ball has become a fine-looking figure, especially — in its lower part.

Sometimes I just sit on the ball, tensing muscles, or get up high, with the power press the buttocks on the ball, lean over to the side, maintaining balance. For posture lie back on the ball and “ride” on it. Generally, the ball can work out any problem area, even the hands and press, as well as to lose weight evenly over the entire area of the body.

Among the advantages revealed that the muscles are easy to fatigue, but this does not prevent an intense workout on the treadmill. Another “bonus” — on a fitball you can download the press, and this is not only convenient, but also very interesting.
After these exercises drew attention to Uchenie back pain. Sometimes after Jogging sit on the ball or “rolled” back, the ball still helps to hold the hitch and relax tense muscles. Wife, by the way, lost weight with the fitball great, but is engaged in a complex set of exercises. Press she was probably a relief, the legs are very sturdy, the back is strong. The ball is well suited for the whole family, even the child is “pulled” to the sport!”

On a smooth practiced with a friend, but the body is sweating unpleasant and starts to slide on the ball. And fitball with knobs these shortcomings do not possess.
