Workout and Fitness Tips For Beginners! Style Expert April Burns says That Exercise Balls are one of the most innovative ways to exercise. The real benefit of these balls, which we’re introduced by a group Swiss medical therapists, is to provide support during exercise. Working out with exercise balls will strengthen and tone all of the major muscles of the body. The soft texture of the balls make it an ideal choice for yoga positions, using dumbbells for muscle toning, or for working out on while using weight training equipment. April advices you to try the workout in the picture above, which is the Total Transformer as it’s known to work for your arms, abs, butt, and legs.
