Using an Exercise Ball as Your Office Chair

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

So many people are trying to figure out ways to stay healthy at work. If you have a family or other obligations after work, it is not always easy to make it the the gym at night. Exercising only on  the weekends isn't enough; it is very challenging for many to get in the required amount of strength training and cardio exercises in a week. The last frontier is trying to figure out some office exercises.

Last week we wrote a blog about some great exercises with a fitness or stability ball. Today, we have another exercise ball suggestion, and this one can help you all day long. We want to talk about the benefits of using an exercise ball as your home or office chair. Not only is it good for you, it is thoroughly enjoyable. Here are some of the benefits of using an exercise ball as your chair. Whether you spend your desk time at the office, or studying at home for that next exam, exercise ball chairs can help you in many ways.

Forces proper spine alignment - Because an exercise ball is not stable, your body needs to try to balance itself on it. The perfect spinal posture is coincidently the easiest to balance with.

Causes you to frequently change positions - This helps reduce damage caused by prolonged sitting in the same position.

Improve your balance - Sitting on an unstable surface all day will improve your sense of balance, and improve the reactions of your muscles.

Improves your circulation - Using an exercise ball will keep the blood flowing to all parts of your body, throughout the day.

So instead of trying to figure out exercises you can do at work while sitting at a desk, use an exercise ball as your office chair, and have fun while you improve your health.
