Using a Swiss ball (aka therapy ball or stability ball) is great for core work & balance. Sometimes even sitting on the Swiss ball can be challenging for some people, so make sure you are in a safe environment and have someone with you to hold the ball the first few times you try it. The first ones are: bridging on the ball, bridging with ball roll, and prayer plank. These are great for your core, glutes, and hamstrings. The next ones are: ball push ups, ball roll outs, and side planks on the ball. These are tougher than they look, so be careful not to roll off the ball. Finally you have: single leg bridges on the ball, single leg bridge ball roll, table top bridging, and table top hip flexion. Make sure you have mastered the other ones before trying these.
