From the Publisher:
The exercise ball has long been recommended by doctors, physical therapists, and Olympic coaches for people suffering from back pain. Now Colleen Craig, author of the best selling book PILATES ON THE BALL, reveals why the exercise ball is unmatched as a tool for building superb abdominal strength. She presents a selection of over 80 innovative exercises, including some of the key powerhouse-builders from the Pilates Method, all of which she has adapted specifically to the ball. Craig shows how traditional sit-ups and "ab" machines actually limit the degree to which abdominal muscles can be trained and can even aggravate lower back pain and neck tension. In contrast, the very mobility of the ball targets under utilized muscles, recruiting both deep and superficial abdominal muscle fibers to enhance results. ABS ON THE BALL includes exercises for all ability levels that show how to properly use the breath and how to activate the correct muscles during a workout, from the core exercises of the Waterfall, Oblique Curls, and Full Abdominal Curls to the more advanced Side Twist Plank, the Teaser, and Backward Crunch. The author also offers a 10- and 20-minute workout designed not only to build the abdominal core, but also to strengthen and train deep muscles in the back and hip in order to soothe lower back pain and increase overall body strength, balance, and coordination.A Pilates approach to building abdominal muscles uses an exercise ball as part of more than one hundred exercises featured in fifteen- and thirty-minute workouts designed for all ability levels.
The Swiss exercise ball has proven to be a useful piece of equipment. Here, Craig offers over 80 exercises, some Pilates-derived, designed to strengthen and tone the abdominals and use the full potential of the ball. Craig guides the user through the exercises, provides advice on breathing and tips on selecting a ball, and addresses the issue of pregnancy and abdominal exercise. She presents basic, intermediate, and advanced level exercises using the exercise ball as well as 10- and 20-minute routines for basic and advanced levels.
