How to keep my exercise ball from rolling?


Recommended Posts

I am literally black and blue from falling off of that thing.  I have a really weak core which is what I'm working on with the ball to begin with.  But it's really only by luck that all I've come away with is some bruises.  Is there something I can put to stabilize this thing and keep it from rolling out from under me?  The hardest is trying to do crunches on this thing.  I do put my legs out wide and that helps but not totally.

I agree with a base.

Or you could train Juliet and the bunnies to lay down next to it. 

The bunnies would take chomps out of it.  😉  And Juliet thinks that it's a giant play ball for her.  I have to keep her away too so that she doesn't accidentally pop it!

Hmm...my son's PT is kind of leery of exercise balls as universal exercise equipment. Maybe you need a little PT before starting it. 

Otherwise, maybe on a yoga mat with some rolled up towels tucked around it from several directions.

I just finished nine straight months of PT. I am now working with a personal trainer who works out of the PT office.

I have rolled up a blanket and made a donut out of it. It kept the ball fairly stable for times when you want the ball to stay in one place.

Maybe do exercises without the ball?  It sounds like it's not terribly safe for you and you can exercise all of those muscles without fear of falling.  Once your core is stronger, you can always add the ball back later.  You should be coming away with sore muscles, not bruises.
