Stability Balls & the Boost They Give Your Workout

In gyms around the world, where the iron of weights and strength training machines give the place a decidedly metallic look and feel; there, on a rack in the corner is a bright, colourful display of beach balls. Or at least that’s what it looks like. Whether or not you use them, there’s one undeniable fact about stability balls, they are more versatile for your workout than just about any other single machine or device.

From gyms to supplement makers, a bulging bicep is your assurance that they are the place to go and the products to use. You can’t say the same for your back muscles.
