Well, my ball has a permanent spot in my living room as a very essential, much love/hated piece of equipment that I could not live without! All the squats and lunges in the world don’t provide the ‘ball burn’ I get when using my stability ball. We even have them in our elementary school as chairs for the little ones and they love them! (Had to laugh at those facial expressions and the ending good work!)

  • Thanks for these tips. I have been doing the workouts outside on my deck and have had to chase the ball into the lower level between exercises at times so will use the weight holder trick now. Funny to watch it roll across the backyard, though.
