I did this workout about two months ago when I still had my stability ball. Actually, this workout is the reason why I no longer own a stability ball. After doing this workout in my bedroom, I went off to work for the day and left my ball in my room. Not inside my closet where it normally sits.
I came home from work, to find the ball, with no air, lying there on my floor.
My little bengal had a hay day while I was at work. 😉
So, now that I’ve just been reminded that I need a stability ball, as soon as I’m done writing this post, I’ll be off to online shopping to find my next ball. I’m making a rule this time though, no more blue balls. The last two balls I’ve had were blue and it’s time to move on from blue balls. 😉

The Workout Explained
Set your timer for 10 minutes.
Complete the following exercises in the order below, completing 25 reps per exercise. (25 reps per leg, when applicable) Complete As Many Rounds As Possible within 10 minutes.
SINGLE LEG SQUAT
SUPINE LEG CURL
I found that this workout, even though targets the entire lower body, really took a toll on my inner thighs. I imagine it was a combo of the ball squeezes, which by the way are really hard to do and split squats. After going on to round three, my legs were already becoming tired from not resting and those first two exercises were really a struggle.
Oh, and with the ball squeezes, if they are new to you, place your toes on the ground to help with support (as I did in the picture) to make them harder, don’t place your feet on the floor. I tried this a few times throughout the workout, but I can’t hold my feet up off the floor for the entire 20 reps so I was back and forth.
Practice creates strength.
Being stronger creates more lean muscle.
Muscles allow me to eat more. 🙂
