Editor’s Pick: Burst-Resistant Exercise Ball
Use this exercise ball after your cardio routine to add range of motion to a typical sit-up or crunch. “These exercise balls are great for stabilizing and toning your core muscles, including your abs and back,” says Adam Schumacher, president of Natural Fitness.
