Whether you refer to it as an exercise ball, Swiss ball, yoga ball or a stability ball, the big round spheres are the ultimate exercise companion.

In addition to being extremely lightweight, stability balls are used during physical therapy sessions and professional athlete trainings as well as regular exercise.

They may be a little difficult to get used to at first, but stability balls force your body to focus on staying balanced during your workout which helps your muscles stay more engaged. Many ball workouts focus on the overall core and abdominal muscles but the ones on this list target many different parts of the body. Work on your buns, tone your thighs and get your entire body into shape with these awesome workouts!

  1. Stability Ball Ab Curls

Roll the ball so that it is in the arch of your lower back. Extend your spine over the ball to get a little stretch in your abs, and place your hands behind your head, elbows wide. Engage the abs and keep the ball steady as you curl and crunch up. Make sure to pull your belly button in towards your spine. Lower and extend back over the ball to repeat 10 times.

  1. Stability Ball Tricep Toners

Stay on the ball in a bridge position with the weights straight up and palms facing in. This time, keep the upper arms steady as you bend at the elbows, bringing the weights by your ears. Use the back of your arms to straighten the arms all the way up. Remember to keep your booty lifted and abs tight! Repeat 15 times.

  1. Stability Ball Leg Lowers

Place the ball between your feet and extend the legs up towards the ceiling, keeping your back flat against the mat. Engaging the lower abs, lower the ball down to about 45 degrees and then pull the lower abs in to lift the ball back straight up to the sky. Repeat 10 times.

  1. Stability Ball Hamstring Curls

Lay on your back with the ball under the feet and arms by your sides. Lift your hips off the ground, using your booty. Press your heels into the ball, and roll the ball in towards your booty, using your hamstrings and keeping your hips steady. Straighten the legs back out, and repeat.

  1. Stability Ball Chest Fly

Have a seat on your ball holding your weights. Roll yourself out so that your shoulders and head are supported on the ball, and bring your arms up to the ceiling with palms facing in. With your elbows slightly bent, open the arms out to the side, then use the chest muscles to bring the weights back up, squeezing the chest. Keep the booty and abs tight to support the lower back. Repeat 15 times.
