Today I will give you 5 exercises with a Swiss Ball that will improve flexibility, strength, and endurance, all with a minimum of equipment.  You can get a Swiss Ball at any Target or Walmart.  Interested in the rebounder?  Contact me at melsolegolf@gmail.com, and I will be happy to ship one to you.  These 5 exercises are part of an overall program that I have spoken about last week and will talk about in the next few weeks to come.  Enjoy!

Here is the list of the exercises I talked about today.

Russian Twist. 

Lie with your shoulders on the swiss ball and extend your arms upward palms together.  Turn to the right as far as you can go and hold for 10 seconds.  Come back to the center.  Turn to the left the same amount and hold for another 10 seconds.  Do 3 sets of 10.

Back Extension. 

Lie on your back with the Swiss ball in the middle of the back.  Arch backward, and while keeping your feet on the ground, try and touch the ground behind you with your fingertips—great stretch for the back.

Seated Shoulder Turn. 

While seated on a Swiss ball, place something like a driver across your shoulders and try and make as much of a shoulder turn as possible.  Hold for 10 seconds.  Breathe in, hold, and as you breathe out, turn a little bit more.  Do the same on the other side.  Do 3 sets.

Advance Push-Up. 

Using the Swiss Ball, do as many push-ups as you can.  The Swiss Ball adds a little instability, so you have to really work your core on this one.  Try and keep your body in a straight line, not the poor job of arching my back that I was doing here!  

Ankle Mobility.

Take a Theraband and wrap it around your knees.  While Sitting on a Swiss Ball with the shins at 90 degrees to the ground, work your knees outward, return to the center.  Do 3 sets of 10.

I am not a fitness instructor.  So please check with a medical professional before embarking on any exercise program to see if you are in physical shape to do these exercises.  Thanks for watching!
