Certified instructor description:
Exceptionally detailed cuing in a three-part stability ball workout. Jessica R’s non-technical, hands-on instruction guarantees proper technique for the fastest results (she even uses a long dowel to visually show your ideal body positioning). While most of the moves are on-the-ball floorwork, you also get some dumbbell and standing routines. Each segment features three sets of three identical exercises (the repetition lets you practice and achieve perfect form). The sections are progressive — the first focuses on the basics while the third features more varied sequences. The entire workout begins with an extended athletic-style warm-up/stretch. Requires a stability ball and 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells. A yoga strap is optional (only used in the warm-up). ©2013.
