Ab exercise with ball

Common Questions and Answers about Ab exercise with ball


Avatar f tn You want those muscles strong, but not inflamed. Light plank holds and exercise ball workouts are good. Plus I find its really easy to oull an ab with all the relaxin and round ligament pain. Let you abs relax drink something with some sugar and see if he gets moving around again.
Avatar n tn I did a 30 min ab class a few days ago which included full situps with a medicine ball, twisting with the ball, and full leg lifts. I know now that I shouldn't have done these exercises. My abdomen feels like I strained or pulled something inside and I have some light brown spotting. I did call my Dr on the spotting and have ceased exercise. I am wondering if I have done something to my abdominals or possibly have damaged something internally?

649848 tn?1534637300 I'm curious about the types of exercise everyone is engaging in these days. Do you go to a gym? Walking, running, etc? Workout videos? Do you have your own exercise equipment? Whatever your "mode" of exercise is -- let's see how many different things we can come up with!! I'm also curious if anyone has a hard time getting started with exercise or can you just jump right in, stay consistent and love it... If so, how much time do you spend on exercise per day/week??
Avatar f tn You can still do crunches but make sure you elevate your head so that you are not flat onyour back, if you have a bench or exercise ball use that. I'm a group fitness instructor pregnant with my second. You can absolutely still workout, but modify some exercises. Deep squat are not recommend the further along you get, avoid jumping,Drink lots of water if your are still working out.
Avatar f tn Hello everyone, great support this forum here. I have looked around to see some similar cases to mine, but couldn't really find any. I don't know where to start, at this point I could cry or scream maybe someone will hear and help me. I feel neglected at my clinic and they don't seem to pay attention to details. I'm scared and don't know what to think. This is the reason I try to put All my symptoms, maybe it will make more sense if put together. Female, 31yo, 5'6" 114-118 lb.
1285110 tn?1420150978 You can also do this while standing, it's a ballerina exercise, lean with your hands against a wall to steady yourself, and extend your legs back and up as far as you can as many times as you can slowly. This joins your hips. Um, sometimes the best butt exercise is to clench your cheeks together as hard as you can throughout the day when no ones looking. You might be interested in taking up belly dance.
Avatar f tn Can anyone give me advice about any exercise I can do to help strengthen my tummy and pelvic muscles post-op esp with lg rubbrer ball that you can sit on ?. Also I understand the drs pump a lot of air into your body during the operation. How do we get rid of this as my stomach is really bloated ? Any suggestions ? Thanks very much.

266539 tn?1281405752 I was looking at a package that had a big ball in it, a toning ring, 3lbs. soft weights, and a some bands that you streach out but it was $40 and I just didn't know if that was worth it. What are some good exercises things that are good to have around the house? I live in an apartment so nothing too big, I do have an ab lounge that I love.
Avatar f tn For a more advanced move, keep your legs straight and lift them up in the air until they are parallel to the floor. Exercise-Ball Crunches Sit on top of an exercise ball with your knees bent and both feet flat on the floor. Cross your arms over your chest. Brace your abdominal muscles and lean back. Then, use your ab muscles to pull your upper body back up to a seated position.
Avatar n tn -Or do you sleep with them and take the risk of passing it on, creating another new case, putting them through what you've been through and living with the responsibility of it on your conscience? I want to be a mum one day, with the right man, but how is that ever going to be possible? I've always been scared of contracting any STD's hense the reason I've only ever used condoms, but I too am now scared of sex. I'm 21 with my whole life ahead of me. This shouldnt be happening!
741975 tn?1253441572 Calisthenics now I am doing just in conjunction with the bike, and if I say 40 minutes that means I have done 4 sets. 30 minutes equals three sets, etc. Sets are ab workout on exercise ball, followed by leg lifts on exercise ball, 12 reps per set. Then traditional push ups, 12 at a time, adding two on the fourth set to make it an even 50 for the day. Arms are tired from weight training yesterday. Also, last night saw 1964 The Tribute beatle band in Kansas City. Great show.
Avatar m tn About 2 years ago he was diagnosed with hypothyroid. On aug 3 07, he was diagnosed with ITP. We have been battling the ITP with the low platelets and using IVIG to raise his counts. In March 08, he was diagnosed with Morphea (autoimmune to his skin), we also thought, based on his stool and blood tests that he had Ulcerative colitis. He has very sore joints as well as sore everything on his body...very hard to sleep at night and get out of bed in the morning.
393685 tn?1425816122 My husband is very supportive, but I just feel that he would not want to be with someone struggling with hair loss. I dunno. Hopefully my hair grows back where it has thinned out. Thanks for putting this ? out there.
Avatar m tn My son was just diagnosed with lymes - they said he had it 6 weeks ago but is fine now and no longer has it. They are not prescribing antibiotics, but everything I read says he should be put on them. What are your thoughts?
Avatar n tn My question is can I ever tighten those muscles again with any exercise at all? My second surgery was a mesh with the umbilical and haital hernias.. I'm almos thinking about liposuction or tummy tuck if you advise staying away from exercise in the abdominal area.
Avatar n tn Hi. This may be way out of the ball park but those symptoms of aching legs, weight gain, throbbing remind me of me pre Hashimoto's thyroiditis diagnosis. Have you had thyroid checked at all? If not make sure they check for antibodies and not just the rubbish TSH test. ...
Avatar n tn While you can't get out to a gym with 3 boys, you can get them interested in a movie, and slip away to exercise for 20 minutes. Or have hubby give them a bath, and do it then. With heel spurs, I would reccommend an elliptical or a recumbent bike. Justify it to yourself this way - It is about the same $ as a membership fee and 6 months of dues, and you own it. Then make yourself use it enough to have been worth it! I had a personal setback in August.
Avatar n tn I am scheduled for a lumbar decompression surgery with internal fusion on March 8th. I was dignosed with spondylosis L5 and spondylothesis, slipage of L4. I get numbness and pain in my right leg alot. I do not want permanent nerve damage so I got 3 opinions. But I am still scared. I am 53 yrs old. Anyone out there have any advice ASAP !!!
Avatar n tn But you shouldnt be laying on your back after around the 2nd trimester anyway. Some suggestions are on the exercise ball or plank holds because it strengthenes your core. But you have to keep it mild, no straining. Anytime you feel strained, stop. Those ab ligaments are easy to pull while you have the relaxin hormones and closer to the end you definitely want to lay off the ab workouts. On the plus side, you can start again right after a natural birth, but not a c section.
Avatar n tn Carpal Tunnel both wrists (surgery in left wrist in February) Psoriasis Extreme Fatigue Muscle aches in my arms major depression Panic Disorder Heart Palpitations Very difficult to loose weight with diet and exercise Brain Fog, poor memory, poor concentration Constipation Calloused heels All comments appreciated!
Avatar m tn bicycle (which also works obliques), captain's chair leg raise (also obliques), traditional OR exercise ball crunch, vertical leg crunch (legs are lifted vertically in the air) (also obliques), reverse crunch (works your lower rectus abdominis), ab rocker, plank on elbows and toes (watch form! keep your bottom down - hold for 20-60 seconds). There are MORE exercises and there are MORE abdominal muscle groups that you should target.
Avatar m tn How far can you travel? With some data like that, we may be able to come up with some sources of help for you. Do you know if your current MD a member of ILADS? Is he/she a dermatologist, or a Lyme specialist? You are right, there is much ignorance about Lyme, but there are good people out there and we are happy to help you find someone who can help.
Avatar n tn Then I tried a similar ab machine and the next day I suffered with a sore neck. Went back to the gym and stayed away from the 2nd ab machine and stuck with the 1st one. Went to the gym the next day and used my regular ab machine. This time I had no stomach strength, like I couldn't crunch with any weights at all. My stomach felt very strange. So I took 2 weeks off to let my "stomach muscles" heal.
Avatar n tn spinal erectors, glutes, and hamstrings. Medicine-Ball Pike Assume a pushup position, but with your feet on a medicine ball. Keep in a straight line from your head to your ankles. Without bending your knees, roll the medicine ball toward your hands by raising your hips as high as you can and rolling the ball with your feet. Pause, and reverse back to the starting position without letting your hips sag. Complete 3 sets of 15 reps, resting 45 seconds between sets.
Avatar f tn A high-fiber granola bar, a bowl of oat bran cereal with low-fat milk and a cup of yogurt with fruit and seeds. You need to do cardiovascular exercise to burn the fat on your sides. The easiest type of cardio is the kind you will do three to four days a week for 45 to 60 minutes. Fast paced walking, jogging, elliptical training, spinning and swimming are examples. Start with a light 5-minute warm-up and finish with a light 5-minute cool-down.
Avatar m tn Have you thought of using them? They are easy to use, fairly inexpensive and should provide you with the results you seek if you purchase the more difficult ones. I hope this information helps.
