ball for a chair

I bought a ball and have been using it as a chair for work.

Does anyone know what muscles this is suppose to work?

Amazingly I found this very quickly using Google. http://www.livestrong.com/article/17...all-at-a-desk/


Why did you buy something that you had no idea what it was for?

I read that along with a lot of other stuff before I bought the ball. I used the ball. I let some other people use the ball. The muscles it is working on me appear to be different than the muscles on other people which makes it very interesting.

I have a theory, but .....
I figure I would come here and let someone point me to the authoritative website.

Send a message via Yahoo to M1A Shooter
when i was in physical therapy, the receptionist/trainer used one at her computer desk but only explained that it was best for her posture.

I seem to remember someone telling me to exercise to failure to understand what muscles are being used.

Yup, I said both those things. What's the confusion? Did you sit on a ball until failure and still can't figure it out?

My boss uses one. His wife is a Doctor of Osteopathy and recommended it. He should just do a bunch of kettlebell swings and then deadlifts. Maybe add a 5 mile run. That will fix his back. I think its all in his head.

p.s. Hi everybody. Been gone a long while. Got the Glock out and been blasting away. Got both my sons hooked on Glocks now and thought it would be a good time to check in.

Jack, Its been going pretty well, actually. Had shoulder surgery in Jan, tore literally everything in it, full thickness rotator cuff tear, labrum, you name it, old age stuff too. It needed to be fixed anyway. I didn't finish PT until April. Started back doing just conditioning then and found Paul Carter's challenge. The hardest part was just getting under the bar to squat. The shoulder pain was incredible. Not pushing it at all. Starting out: Squat 315, DL 315 and BP 145. Should make quick progress on getting them up esp. the squat and DL. Bench is going to take some time. Still working hard on conditioning. Goals are to get my numbers up, improve conditioning, and fat loss and NOT sit on a ball. LOL
