Workout: Day 5
Today you’re going to use your exercise ball
to help further improve your core. I want you to practice sitting on
it. You can do this while at the computer, watching TV, eating or
playing cards. Once you’ve mastered your balance
try rolling back and forth and side to side on it instead of just
sitting. Keep a slight inward curve to your low back during this process
and sit up straight. It’s important to note that exercise balls are NOT
intended for prolonged sitting and should not replace an office chair. I
would recommend no more than one hour a day, broken up.
And yes, I want you to walk again today. Why? Well, remember the link I posted to on Day 2?
It’s something that pretty much anyone can do, and even fit people can
benefit from more walking. If you’re still not convinced of the benefits
of more walking, watch this video from Dr. Mike.
