The Half-Ball replaces 4 fitness machines at once:
1) Balance Board: Much higher coordination and balance requirements.
2) Abdominal trainer: Much more effective abdominal exercises possible (for large and deep muscle groups).
3) Back stretchers: Adapts better to the spine than conventional "back stretchers".
4) Exercise ball: Is space-saving and can also be adjusted in height on the chair.
Training tips: When practicing on the unstable half-ball, you can wiggle. This increases the effectiveness of the exercises because the wiggle effect also activates the deep muscles. Always breathe fluently. In dynamic exercises, exhale as you move up and inhale as you move down. Pay attention to a correct and very slow movement. If pain occurs during exercise, seek medical advice. As far as your training status allows, a longer / longer exercise period is recommended. You should feel comfortable, ie the load should never be perceived as too heavy. In order to achieve optimal training success with as little training effort as possible, you should train at least 10 minutes 2-3 times a week. Over time, there will be a training effect. So that you continue to challenge your body, you can, for example, increase the number of repetitions / exercise duration, perform the movement even more slowly, choose variants with a higher level of difficulty, repeat the exercise sequence once or up to 3 times. The halfball is also suitable for balance exercises while standing on the flat side. WARNING: Balance exercises while standing can lead to falls and are at your own risk. Half Ball as a seat cushion: You can change the air volume according to your individual needs. When there is a large amount of air, the half-ball bulges in the floor area and the trampoline effect (vertical vibration effect) increases. With a small amount of air, a clear seat trough is created, the half-ball becomes flatter and the rocking effect increases. To reduce the air volume, remove the needle from the side of the pump handle, insert it (without pump) into the valve as far as it will go and then press the half-ball. If there is an uncomfortable bulge under the buttocks, you should sit further up on the ball or change the air volume. With a small amount of air, you can also sit on the flat side of the half-ball. To optimize the sitting posture, you should sit more in the front area of the half ball. Behind the buttocks there is an approximately hand-wide ball arch. Most people sit too deep. The optimal, open seat angle is 110 ° to 120 ° between the trunk and thigh. By regulating the air volume, you can optimize your seat height on the half-ball accordingly. The Half-Ball is an alternative seat for back training in between. You can increase your sitting time with an improved training state.
