    Why on earth would I want to mistreat my stability ball in that manner? I might render it…unstable! :-D

    Always great videos! I love the right & wrong videos you ladies do! I see the wrong A LOT in the gym! ;) I do the challenging version most but when I am a bit pooped, I do the less challenging! :)

    You must have been up late to have such a timely post this morning! Or did you see Captain Kirk’s video a day early… (I love William Shatner; and he’s Canadian, to boot!).

    Great video and perfect pointers. I see all of those mistakes in my classes daily. Sharing, sharing, sharing!

    As always, great how to video! They really help grasp the do’s and don’ts in an easy to understand way. It’s amazing how drastically wrong so many people do their exercises!

    This is a really helpful video. I quite like using the stability ball but I know my form isn’t always as good as it should be. Actually after looking at this I’m pretty sure I haven’t been getting the best out of my workouts at all.
