7 Benefits of Strength Training With a BodyBall... Besides Building Muscle.

Lifting weights is the natural choice if you want a broad back and bulging biceps.

However, you might be surprised to learn that it’s also effective for a much wider range of fitness goals.

Less than 25% of American adults exercise regularly. Even fewer make strength training a central part of their routine.

If that sounds like you, you’re missing out on more than bigger muscles and a slimmer core.

"Incorporating the power of resistance into your workouts

can help you get more impressive results in less time. A BodyBall will replace dumbbells and kettlebell purchases to make your fitness journey less expensive for you."

Learn more about what strength training with a BodyBall can do for you, and how to get started.

Step 1. Get yourself a BodyBall. I would recommend the 20 lbs. version for females and beginners and the 35 lbs. version for males and non novice individuals. But the choice is up to you.

Step 2. Read and Remember the topics covered below...

7 Lesser-Known Benefits of Strength Training with Your BodyBall:

  1. Condition your heart. Aerobics may be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about exercises for your heart, but strength training works too. That’s because it helps reduce abdominal fat that causes inflammation and other health issues. A BodyBall can be used for Aerobic Exercises like Mountain Climbers and Burpees, just to name a few.

  2. Lower your blood pressure. Hypertension puts you at higher risk for stroke and heart disease, and there are often no symptoms to warn you. Along with taking any medication recommended by your doctor, physical activity can help you stay within a safer range. Now you don't even have to leave your home for your daily workouts. Leave your BodyBall by a door or room. Every time you pass that area, do a max set of a full body exercise like Thrusters. If you do that multiple times a day, all the movements will add up and over time you will notice yourself becoming stronger.

  3. Lose weight. Muscle burns more calories than fat even when you’re sitting on the couch. As long as you avoid eating more, you may find it easier to shed excess pounds.

  4. Prevent falls. Enhancing your balance and posture makes you steadier on your feet. Weight-bearing exercises also thicken your bones, so your injuries may be less serious even if you do slip. BodyBall Gen. 2 offers a perfect balance training tool built right into it. Start on flat side for beginners and once your ready to challenge yourself, flip the BodyBall over to the rounded side. Immediately that same exercise will become much harder to maintain control over your entire body.

  5. Increase flexibility. Lowering weights affects your body in much the same way as static stretches. That extra flexibility reduces stress and gives you greater freedom of movement. And, you will actually train your muscles in a more efficient way on the eccentric (lowering) part of the movement.

  6. Increase your energy. Daily tasks require less effort when you reduce your body fat and learn to use your body more efficiently. You may find it easier to keep up with your children and grandchildren.

  7. Boost your overall wellbeing. Research shows that exercise can be as effective as antidepressants for some patients. In addition to looking fit, you’re likely to feel happier and calmer and may even reverse cognitive decline associated with aging.

Tips for Getting Started with Strength Training with Your BodyBall:

  1. Follow instructions. Lifting weights can be safe as long as you take a few simple precautions. Work with a trainer or watch soon-to-be videos on this site and YouTube to study proper form and choose exercises that are less likely to cause injury.

  2. Proceed gradually. Start with light weights and work your way up as your body adapts. As a general rule, try to add one more rep then you did on your previous training session.

  3. Lift heavy. At the same time, you’ll progress faster if you use the heaviest weights you can handle safely. That usually means you can just barely complete your last repetition. The BodyBall is perfect for heavy weights lifted over your head because of the small compact design, it feel much more stable, giving you better control of the heavy weight.

  4. Seek variety. Work your muscles from different angles. Experiment with different weight options of the BodyBall as well as body weight exercises, like pull ups and dips.

  5. Take days off. Your muscles actually grow during the time you spend resting in between workouts. That might mean relaxing or doing other activities like hiking or swimming.

  6. Adjust your lifestyle. Adopt healthy habits to go along with your physical activities. Eat a balanced diet and aim for 8 hours of sleep each night. Manage stress and cultivate mutually supportive relationships.

"A toned body looks great, but strength training with your BodyBall offers so much more. "
