Intermediate Exercises to Try on the Swiss Ball

In every gym I’ve been to, a Swiss ball is always present. Of course, you could do more than just sitting down on it. While performing any exercise on a Swiss ball, it’s best to keep your mid-section tight, so you do not feel any pressure on your lower back.

 

These two exercises are not that tough but challenging nonetheless, try it at the end of your workout, 3 sets of 10 slow and controlled repetition.
