When traveling the world ROXY Outdoor Fitness ambassador and surf team rider Sally Fitzgibbons always has her fit ball, providing the focus for a great workout. (Fun Fact: Sally literally will bring her pump and ball everywhere –even a catamaran off the coast of Tahiti!).
This piece of equipment provides endless options when developing workout routines. Take a journey through Sally’s personal morning workout routine in her Fresh Water Tee and Enhance Capris straight from her beachside backyard in hometown Gerroa, Australia.Each of the 4 fit ball exercises has a balance element, making them perfect for simulating being on a surfboard, while also being great for building power and strength in your day-to-day living and activities.
Remember to smile while exercising to help distract yourself from any pain or fatigue you may feel…smile and go the mile!
Grab your fit ball and Dumbbells and here we GO!
Dumbbell Shoulder Press – Stabilize yourself on the ball then alternate your arms for shoulder press. Use weights that suite the level you are at and think tall and strong through your mid section. Do 10 reps each arm x 3
Hammy Curls – Start on your back with legs straight on the Fit ball and hold a solid plank. Don’t let your back lower or sink and pull your legs back toward your butt. Slowly release back to straight. You will feel this in the back of your legs, great strengthener for your hamstrings. Do 15 reps x 3
Single leg Squat- Grab your dumbbells that suite your ability and place one leg up on the Ball. Without having your front knee bend beyond your toe line, lower the back knee toward the ground for a single leg squat. Do 10 reps each leg x 3
Plank on Bench - Use your surroundings, find a wall or bench that is close to the same height as the fit ball and challenge yourself in doing a raised plank. Build up from 30seconds to 1 minute holds.
