The exercise ball will replace your chair. It causes you to recruit your nervous system for balance, contract muscles in the areas mentioned for stability, cushions your lower back (the area most stressed when sitting for long periods), and will help maintain the normal curvature of your spine.
The first week you replace your chair with it will be challenging. Your nervous system has to learn the proper neural signaling to keep you stable on it. You may even fall off a few times when first starting to use itthats expected.
Lying with your lower back curving over the top of the ball, slowly contract your abdominal muscles pulling your chest forward about 3 inchesthen relax your abdominals. That is one repetition. Do as many as you can until you feel your abdominals fatigue. That will be one set. Perform 3 sets of this exercise.
To perform the entire movement, lower your chest to the ball while bending your arms at the elbows and shoulders. The ball will have a tendency to roll so grasp the ball firmly. You may even find your arms shake a little as you lower your chest to the ball. This is expected as your nervous system learns how to balance your body over the ball.
