    Wow! Superb exercise. Is this possible for people at their 40′s?

    This is a good exercise to use with just that ball. I like the fact that your exercises are not bad on our knees and other joints.

    These exercises look like they’ll help me recover from my C section, once I get clearance to exercise that is.

    I’m not a runner myself but I’m sure this can benefit me as well. Now if only I had a ball. Haha!

    We have this ball in my mom’s house. I would like to try this!!

  • Jaja July 28, 2014, 3:22 am

    I like that the exercise is simple enough to be done at home. Too bad my doctor forbids me to do any strenuous exercise as of the moment due to my gun shot wound. I’ll keep this in mind though, para pag pwede ko nagawin ang laki na ng na gain ko e

    This looks hard for me..LOL! But I think I could do this.

    These look challenging, but I’m sure the exercise ball makes it a whole lot more effective.
