Here's why you should get ballin':
A stability ball works your abs way more than regular crunches do. Plus, use it in place of a bench for strength moves and your core gets a workout — you'll engage your deep obliques and lower-back muscles to stay in place.

From boot camps to SoulCycle to early morning dance parties, there’s no shortage of fitness trends with a devoted, young, fit following. But when it comes to exercises that even the oldest and most out of shape can (and should) add to their workout repertoires keep it simple.
The number 1 excuse for not working out is time! Don't think you have time? I'm going to show you that you do. Stay with me on this now...you're watching your favourite 1-hour show on TV. During EVERY commercial break I want you to do this...
1. 10 jumping jacks
2. 10 squats
3. 10 push-ups
4. 10 crunches
6. Once you have done this twice and the commercials are still running then plank until the show comes back on. Do this during every commercial break. By the time your show is done you have completed a 13-14 minute workout.
Good Morning! Today I would like to talk about how to properly incorporate bodyweight training into your workout routine. While weight training IS absolutely essential for your progress, it should NOT be the only way that you are training. You do not have to walk into the gym and put up as much weight as possible every time you work out. If you can move your own body via push-ups, pull-ups, body weight squats, ab wheel rollouts, etc., you are better off than people who lift heavy weights yet cannot do a pull-up.
The MINIMUM EFFECTIVE DOSE is simply the smallest dose that will produce a desired outcome and anything BEYOND the MED is wasteful. That being said, use this training you can do when you are stuck for time and you still want results. Follow the training below, 4 times per week for 12 -16 weeks to get the body you want. Day 1Close grip pushups 10 reps (Can be done on knees or on an incline surface)
