Why should I use an exercise ball for my abs?

Exercise Balls Can Strengthen Your Abdominals

Experts say an exercise ball workout is great for your abdominals for the following three reasons:

1. Comfort - an exercise ball conforms to your back, allowing you to exercise and flatten your abs without straining your back.

2. It ramps up your exercises with ease - it's simple to increase the difficulty of your exercises. You also will get the most benefit from each abs exercise you do.

3. Convenience - exercise from home where you have privacy, can do it when it's convenient for you and don't have to deal with commuting to the gym, waiting in line for equipment or gym membership fees.
