Everyone wants to have a healthy body, but few of us know what to do. Going to the gym is definitely a good idea, but it's often hard to find the time, and then all the exercise equipment and all these machines can be a bit intimidating. Plus, it's not really a good idea to lift weights without overseeing or learning the proper technique, and hiring a personal trainer can be very expensive. Luckily, there are a lot of exercises you can do at home that will tighten your whole body and all you need is a simple tool – a fitness ball.
1. Wall squats
This is a great way to aim your quads and make those thighs slimmer. Stand with your back to the wall. Place the fitness ball between your back and the wall and squat until your knees are bent at 90-degree angles. The fitness ball will support your back and prevent you from bending forward to ensure proper shape.
2. Overhead ball pass
This is a great exercise for two reasons. One – you lie down on the floor all the time. Two – you are still training your whole body. Just hold the fitness ball with your legs and then give it to your hands and hold it over your head and then back to your legs. It looks easy, but it really is a great workout for your core.
3. Knee pads
This particular exercise actually works all of your body as well. You will focus on stretching your knees while your heart will work hard to keep you steady, and your arms and shoulders will hold most of your weight. It is a very effective muscle building exercise.
