In this video workout sequence of a Stability Ball Combo, you hit legs and abs quickly and effectively!
This is one of my favorite leg shaping sequences from the DVD workout Ball Sculpt 1: Nothing But the Ball (available at Amazon.com). This 5 minute workout hits your hamstrings and abs using the stability ball. Leg curl works the hamstrings, and most people are weak in the hamstrings, which causes lower back and posture problems. If you workout at home, (and some gyms), you may not have access to a leg curl machine, making it all the more important to use this video!
When doing the leg curl, you may have to do one rep, then stop and slowly build your strength to get consecutive reps. Done properly, it is a very challenging exercise! The plank position targets the core, ie the abdominals and lower back muscles. You pretty much work everything form the neck down! The leg curl is supersetted with abdominal exercises. You get more done in less time! Efficient, effective workouts get you in shape faster than ever! Add this sequence to your routine 2-3 times a week for tighter legs and abs before summer!
Additional info: This DVD workout Ball Sculpt 1: Nothing But the Ball (available at Amazon.com) is loaded with workout options! It includes "pre-mix" routines that combine the exercises in various combinations for unique workouts. Plus, you get a "Fit in 40" full body workout.
