Fact about Ball:
Swiss Ball were used in 1960 by a physical therapist to treat orthopaedic and neurological disorder.

YOB strengthens your core muscles, including your abdominal muscles, back muscles and the muscles around the pelvis. You can do many core- exercises & yoga asana with a fitness ball.
Do each core-strength exercise five times and maintain good form and technique. As you get stronger, gradually increase to 12 to 15 repetitions. For most people, a single set of 12 to 15 repetitions can build strength and improve fitness as effectively as can multiple sets of the same exercise.
Breathe freely and deeply and focus on tightening your abs during each core-strength exercise i.e IAP intra abdominal pressure.

other core muscles
WITH YOGA BALL
Replacing your desk chair with a stability ball seems like a good way to sneak in some core exercise while you work.
Sitting on a chair requires no muscle activity at all and it actually hurts us for a number of reasons, “For one, people tend to slouch and use poor posture, and sitting in a chair puts your abs on ‘slack’ and decreases core strength. Using an exercise ball counteracts both of these things.Sitting properly requires subtle muscle contractions of the core, hip and leg muscles to maintain balance, which contributes to muscle tone.
If you enjoy yoga, there are plenty of ways to shake up your usual routine and one is adding new tools to the mix.
The stability ball is a great way to get extra support for moves that require endurance and flexibility and it also adds a balance challenge to some poses.
The lack of stability only adds to the workout, firing up different muscles and strengthening the connective tissue that supports the joints of the body.
