Having a ball with the ball

This is a Ball pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 12431)

Although I won't break this down into counts, I still keep with the beat....

Shoulder raises with a balancing act

Sit on the ball. One weight in each hand. Extend one leg out in front of you. Hold it up off the floor while you perform side shoulder raises! (Switch legs at some point, of course!)

"Rolling along" with one-legged lunges!

Right foot on floor in stationary lunge position. Place ball behind you, LEFT FOOT ON THE BALL, laces down. As you lunge down, roll the ball behind, you. As you come up, roll the ball forward. (Modify by using step bench or body bar to balance)

Butt blasters on the ball

(actually works low back, butt and hamstrings) Lie face down on the ball, hands on the floor. Position yourself so that you can lift your feet off the floor and hold body straight like a pencil. Bend knees 90 degree angle, toes pointed toward ceiling. Contract glutes and lift feet toward ceiling, trying to lift thighs off ball.

I've got a lot more where those came from, but enough for now....
Have fun! :)
